NBMS Junior Optimist Club

Club Sponsors for the 2011-2012 academic year is Melody Markert.
The NBMS Jr. Optimist Club is closely linked with the Optimist Club of Weaverville. These clubs provide service to those in need in our community. To date we have approximately 40 kids on the roster. We meet weekly and are currently involved in a White Christmas canned food drive that benefits those in our local community.
In December, the NBMS chapter will work with the Optimists of Weaverville selling Christmas trees in the parking lot of Ace Hardware on Weaver Blvd. We will also will be part of the Optimist Club float in the Weaverville Holiday Parade.
The NBMS Jr. Optimists will also work the concessions at some of the girl's and boy's basketball games this winter. In the spring we will sponsor the End of Year Dance at the middle school. Proceeds from these fund raisers go to scholarships for the Washington DC trip as well as other programs as need indicates.
The Optimist Club of Weaverville sponsors not only the NBMS chapter but also the chapter at North Windy Ridge. For more information about the Optimist Organization, please visit www.optimist.org.
