Optimists Seek Support For Youth Fair


The Rim Country Optimist Club is coming before the town council this week to ask for support.

The club is planning the Community Festival of Youth Variety Fair in mid-September.

The event is being organized to encourage a network of local services and establish better communication between all the clubs and organizations that serve children in the Rim Country.

It will also provide a showcase for young people with two stages where they can perform, display artwork and speak about what is important to them.

The end product will be a database of children's services published in a directory and distributed to local agencies and programs.

Carolyn Snell, chair of the event, sees the directory as a resource listing scholarships, free clothing, eye glasses, funding for small group activities, clubs and services and more.

The Community Festival of Youth Variety Fair is from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 14 at the Rim Country Mall.

Members of the Optimist Club will be at the Aug. 15 council meeting to ask for the town's support of the event.
