Wayne and Sue Hill once again hosted the Optimist Club of Gettysburg Family Night on Wednesday, July 17, and as usual the evening was a huge success and a great time with plenty of good food and a lot of fellowship for Optimist Club members and their families. After the feast, the attendees gathered around the pool for the traditional trivia contest with the winning team earning the opportunity to select a community charity or good cause to be a recipient of a $1000.00 award from the Optimist Club.
The contest this year was hosted by Tom Barako and centered on subjects related to musical history, comic strip trivia and super heroes past and present. The team made up of Al Parone, Kris Accardi, Mindy Accardi and Brent and Karen Smith dazzled everyone with their wide range of knowledge and intellect, taking first place and earning the right to select a charity.
After some careful consideration, the winners selected the Big Brothers and Big Sister Program and the SCCAP Circles Program, an effort that supports local children with back to school supplies. Each organization will receive $500.00 from the Optimist Club of Gettysburg.
Our sincere appreciation to Wayne and Sue Hill for their lovely hospitality and their continued dedication to Optimism and our effort to “Bring Out The Best in Kids”.
