Optimist Clubs celebrate Easter

Many Optimist Clubs hold them, and all will agree these fun events are the fastest projects your Optimist Club will ever do. What are they? Easter Egg Hunts of course!

Official time: 1 minute 43 seconds. That's how long it took for the little hunters and gatherers to make their way to the finish line with their candy at the Meridian Optimist Club Easter Egg-Off. Caseloads of candy were spread out in four age groups and hundreds of youngsters up to ten years old raced through the course collecting their treasure. Many also garnered specially marked prizes and got to choose from tables full of gifts donated by Meridian, Idaho businesses. The Meridian Fire and Police Departments joined in the fun. You can watch the slide show and enjoy it too!
