Meeting of March 29:
The speaker at the meeting was Sarah Willams, Executive Director of Hannah's Treasure Chest. Hannah's Treasure Chest, located in Centerville, provides care packages of clothing, toys, books, hygiene items, etc. to children in need in Montgomery and surrounding counties. This non-profit organization, in its 15th year, collects donations of new and gently used items that they prepare for distribution to children in need throughout the year ("Christmas year Round"). They partner with about fifty service agencies for the distribution of the items. One of their major fund raisers is an annual golf outing (see below). For information on donations, volunteer opportunities, and items needed for the care packages, see their website at http://hannahstreasure.org/wp1/
The March 27 edition of The Dayton Daily News mentioned two of our club projects on page B2 of the State and Local section. It highlighted some Northridge School news, and included photos from our Pass/Shoot/Dribble event, and the Essay Contest awards. A copy is downloadable from the "Northridge Optimist Club in the News" button on the right.
The date has been scheduled for the Northridge Optimist Club 33rd Annual Scholarship Scramble golf outing. The event is a fund raiser for Northridge area youth activities and scholarships. The date is Friday, September 23, 2016.
