Salem Optimist Club lands a big sponsor for the Kids Relays

One of the Salem Optimist Clubs signature events is the Kids Relays, a one-day field day that they organize with the Salem Parks and Recreation Department. When other groups backed out of the event in recent years, the Optimist Club was there to take up the slack and ensure that the event went on as planned.

This year they are proud to announce a presenting sponsor for the event: Country Financial. The event will now be known as the Country Kids Relays.

“After supporting the relays for 17 years, we are proud to be the presenting sponsor,” says John Jolliff, Western Region vice president of operations. “At COUNTRY, teamwork comes naturally as we help our clients achieve financial security, and it’s truly a team effort to continue bringing this event to our community.”

The team effort will continue with the City of Salem and the Salem Optimist Club. Country Kids Relays will be held on May 8, 2010 at he Willamette University McCulloch Stadium. Find out more at the Country Kids Relays website.
