Optimistic support of the Oregon National Guard

The Hillsboro Optimist Club pledged to support the Oregon National Guard Delta Company before they deployed in 2009. Although the unit returned last year, the Optimist Club's commitment and involvement continues today.

Monte Akers, a leader of the project and member of the Hillsboro Optimist Club provided the following pictures with the description of one of their recent activities with the unit, "Attached are pictures from the Oregon National Guard Delta Company Picnic for soldiers and their families after they had returned from their two week training summer camp. They are also the soldiers that returned from a 1 year deployment in Iraq last year. The Hillsboro Optimist Club teamed up with the Delta Company Family Readiness Group to provide a Bouncy House, Home Depot Pencil Box Projects and Face Painter for the kids. We also, provided a Santa and gifts for the kids while the soldiers were deployed."

Thank you, Hillsboro Optimist Club, for your ongoing commitment to our servicemen and women and their families.
