An Optimistic Coffee Stop

Our Optimist Clubs raise money in different ways. Some are getting ready for their biggest fundraisers of the year with Christmas Tree sales. Others are plugging away with service and earning a little bit of money to boot. 

The Chehalis Centralia Optimist Club is one that is earning money by providing service. According to President Monique Connors,
"This week our Optimist group had a coffee stop fund raiser out at Toutle Rest Stop. Despite the really nasty weather we did pretty well and served many cups of coffee...tea and cocoa. The people who stopped were grateful and a delight to serve.

Looking forward to out next fund raiser in March when we have a Silent/Chinese Auction & Dinner. Lots of great items so come see, March 23-2013 starting at 5:00 P.M."
As families traveled to be with one another on the Thanksgiving holiday, I'm sure the coffee was well appreciated. Thank you for your service.

Thanks to Monique for sharing the story.
