The Optimist Club of Gettysburg traditionally operates a free youth basketball program open to boys and girls in grades K-6, serving more than 150 students annually. The community-based program that emphasizes the fundamentals of basketball runs for 8 weeks and has a great all-play program. The members of the Gettysburg Optimist Club select the coaches, arrange for local logistics, and provide supplies for the program. This year, the basketball program had to evolve due to Covid. The organization held a one day clinic that was adored by everyone that participated or volunteered. The tireless efforts of our members ensures that this amazing tradition continues. This is one of many ways our volunteers strive to continuously help bring out the best in kids, no matter what obstacles are put in place. #adamscountygivingspree  #donateonnov5
