We're (almost) nuts!

Each year the Optimist Club of Jasper sells FRESH pecans straight from the south Georgia pecan groves during November and December.  We guarantee that they are this year’s crop!  These pecans are perfect for your Thanksgiving baking and Christmas giving.   Each 12 OZ. bag of pecan halves 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 bring out the best in kids” and the funds raised are used here in Pickens County to help the North Georgia Boys and Girls Clubs, the summer 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, Pickens County 4-H, 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 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, Pickens Progress, Parish Lowrie State Farm and more.  Also, all of our club members will have them available!  Cash or checks made out to Optimist Club of Jasper.

If you wish to order 1/2 case (16 bags) or an entire case (32 bags) contact Sue Appleton at jsappleton@windstream.net or 706-692-9755 and we will get them delivered to you (cash/check on delivery).
