The South Strand Optimist Club will hold its first youth recognition program at its monthly meeting on Thursday, Jan. 16 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at Applewood House of Pancakes, 14361 Ocean Highway, Litchfield (next to Bi-Lo at the Commons Exchange Center in the Litchfield Beach area.)
This program will recognize musically gifted middle/intermediate school students in grades 6 – 8 in public and private schools in the South Strand.
“We are excited about the opportunity to recognize the youth of our community,” said Marty Waltemyer, President of the South Strand Optimist Club. “This program will become an annual event.”
The South Strand Optimist Club serves the town of Surfside Beach, the communities of Burgess, St. James, Garden City Beach, Murrells Inlet, the Waccamaw Neck, and the city of Georgetown.
Optimist Clubs are known throughout the world for ‘Bringing Out the Best in Kids.’
“If you would like to be involved in recognizing our community’s youth and those that assist them, we welcome you to join our effort,” Waltemyer said.
