The Optimist Club of Wolf Point is finishing 2012 in a whirlwind of activities to benefit the youth of our community.
The new officers for 2012-13 were recently installed. Officers are Ruth A. Boysun, president; Linda Stoll and Donna Reum, vice presidents; Gloria Sande, secretary; Susan Davis, treasurer; Patricia Stennes, immediate past president; and Tina Speed, Elsie Hanson, Shelley Rodenberg, Larry Neutgens, Joe Sande, Connie Zimmerman and Chris Will, directors. They were installed by Optimist International Lieutenant Governor Gary Cross of Regina, Sask., Canada.
Plans were made and committees set in action to complete plans for the holiday activities.
On Saturday, Nov. 3, the Optimist Club is sponsoring a Schwan Truckload Sale at the Homestead Inn truck parking lot beginning at 10 a.m.
Proceeds from the sale will benefit youth activities of the club. Orders can be placed online or just stop by the truck on Saturday.
Saturday, Dec. 1, will be the annual bazaar, cookie sale and salad bar at the Wolf Point High School gymnasium and multi-purpose room. A new activity at the bazaar will be a “My Teddy and Me” stuffed animal area for children to make their own toys.
Proceeds from the bazaar event benefit youth activities while the teddy bears will benefit the childhood cancer fund.
Friday, Dec. 7, the annual radio-thon for the Angel Tree will be on KVCK from 1 to 3 p.m. hosted by Joe Sande and Brandi Lynn Laubach.
The community has always been very generous with their contributions making Christmas a happier event for many of the less fortunate children in Wolf Point.
The Angel Tree committee will be completing that project Dec. 19-22 with gift wrapping, sorting and distribution. Angel Trees will be placed around town after Thanksgiving for those wishing to purchase their own gift for the child on the angel.
