The 2017 Family Night was once again a successful and fun evening for all. We want to thank the McPherson American Legion for once again giving the Optimist Club the opportunity to use the November Family Night as a fundraiser for the GIFT program. We were able to raise $740 that will go directly to the expense of purchasing Christmas gifts for teens in need.
Sign up to volunteer for the upcoming activities associated with the Gifts Intended for Teens program.
In Ocotber of 2017 the McPherson Optimist Club volunteers came together at the Mount Hope Sanctuary to replace a swingset with a new play structure for the kids living at the home. Earlier in the year the Optimist Club had presented Mount Hope with $1,000 to improve the playground area and to help make it a safer and more enjoyable area for the kids.
Brad Miller's term as President of the McPherson Optimist Club recently expired. He was presented with a plaque to commemorate his term and to thank him for his service to the club. James Melland the incoming club President presented the Plaque.
