Next Meeting: The meeting on May 5 will be devoted to discussion of the future strategy for Northridge Optimist Scholarship fund.

This is a very important meeting to discuss the future and direction of the scholarship funds, including expansion of the Club and Foundation’s role in the College Promise Program. Please try to come to the meeting and take part in these important discussions.
