The band shell and Optimist Club grounds are utilized for the Harvest Festival Little Princess and Queen contests and horseshoe tournaments. In addition, the band shell also supports the community and city by hosting free weekly Tuesday night concerts during the summer and also features several free outdoor family movies. The first one was FROZEN and attracted a very large number and providing great entertainment for area families. Besides youth activities we support the community in many other ways. We provide a free Thanksgiving Dinner for area seniors (37th year), free Veterans lunch for area veterans (37th year) and host the Chambers Business after Hours where all Scottville businesses are highlighted.
In addition, our building is used as a distribution center for Toys for Tots and is a Red Cross emergency shelter for the area. As you can see we are a very busy club helping the youth and community of our area. We partner with the Boy Scouts and they meet every Monday at the Hall and the Clown Band utilizes the Hall for practice. Please consider joining us today!
The Club is always open to presentations from the community to help with various activities and we welcome help from volunteers and new ideas to help us do even more.
Our current programs and activities include the Scottville downtown flag program, high school track meets, wrestling tournaments, youth dances, popcorn wagon, high school essay contests for college scholarships, support Special Olympics horseshoe and Bocce Ball tournaments and provide bell ringers for the Salvation Army. Our fundraisers include the Harvest Festival Breakfast and selling brats and hot dogs with the popcorn wagon, Community Garage Sale, Annual Sportsman's Banquet and Rifle raffle fundraiser. Our annual Veterans Dinner is something we are very proud of.
This year we will also be providing a kids Christmas Party with Santa Claus at the hall for area youth and families. The Club also hosts a Christmas Party to thank all who have supported us throughout the year.
The Optimist Club also supports the band shell performances by the Scottville Clown Band.
