Caldwell Optimists take kids to the movies

Earlier this week, the Idaho Press Tribune ran a short but impressive tribute the Caldwell Optimist Club. They recognized them, along with Mayor Garrett Nancolas, for honoring the youth of the community at Youth Appreciation Day on November 12.

As part of the activities, Mayor Nancolas  signed an official proclamation declaring the day to be Youth Appreciation Day in the City of Caldwell and the Caldwell Optimists sponsored free movies for children through 5th grade at the Reel Theatre.

According to Marlene Terry, a columnist for the Idaho Press Tribune who writes under the pseudonym Ida Chatter, the Caldwell Optimist Club is also known for youth soccer and bringing back the PAL Boxing Invitational, among other things.

Sometimes it takes a little time and persistence for our media outlets to recognize the small, but meaningful activities our Optimist Clubs perform in our communities. Thanks to the Idaho Press Tribune for noticing and many thanks to the Caldwell Optimist Club and President Connie Holt for all that you do.
