Optimist Community Champion Award

The Centerville Noon Optimist Club has announced the Second Annual Optimist Community Champion Award.  This award will help local citizens in the South Dayton communities to recognize champions within the community. The goal is to recognize citizens who have played a major role in helping children and families. The Optimist Club is looking for people, who in the course of everyday life have made an extraordinary impact through efforts that have enhanced the well being in our community. They can be recognized
for courage, bravery, special achievements, mentoring, coaching or for having noble  character.
Larry Lynde, President of the Centerville Noon Optimist Club stated, “We encourage all residents to think about acknowledging and recognizing the everyday champions we have in our communities. You may know us for our Christmas tree sales and Avenue of Flags program but this is not about us. It is to recognize people not of great renown but those who perform acts that win our admiration.”
