Optimists needed in River Falls; focus will be on children

One of the largest civic service organizations worldwide - the Optimists Club -- is hoping to organize a chapter soon in River Falls.

"We are excited about helping the children of River Falls," said local organizer Alice Baldini. "We are looking for some other like-minded individuals who would like to help us improve the lives of children in our community.

Baldini said a club meeting will be held soon for interested persons.

"Those who best know what River Falls needs are those who live here all year," she said. "If you have an opinion about how we can best serve the community's youth, please let us know.

"We will be having an informational meeting Monday, April 19, at 6:30 p.m. at the West Wind Supper Club. Everyone is welcome to attend."
