OPTIMIST PECANS HAVE ARRIVED
By Sue Appleton/Pecan Committee
Each year the Optimist Club of Jasper sells FRESH pecans straight from the Georgia pecan groves during November and December. We guarantee that they are this year’s crop. These pecans are perfect for your Thanksgiving baking as well as Christmas giving. Each 12 oz. bag sells for $8.00. They are to be delivered to us the first week of November to ensure that they are fresh from the trees!
The mission of the Optimists is “to being out the best in kids” and the funds raised are distributed in Pickens County to help the North Georgia Boys and Girls Clubs, the children’s programs at Pickens County Library, the Joy House, CARES, Pickens Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy, Prevent Child Abuse Pickens, Weekend Snack Program in the schools, the Hope House, ACES and more! Other programs supported by this fundraiser include our annual Oratorical Contest, our annual Essay Contest and our annual Respect for the Law breakfast. Each year the Optimist Club of Jasper also holds the STAR Banquet that recognizes the top high school seniors and their STAR teachers.
Where can you find these delicious pecans and help Pickens County kids? You can purchase them at Garner Ace Hardware, Marble Hill Ace Hardware, United Community Bank, Bank of North Georgia, both Renasant Banks, both Community Banks of Pickens County, Shaw Supply, R and R Trikes, Falcon Physical Therapy, and more. Also, all of our club members will have them available! Cash or checks made out to Optimist Club of Jasper.
