The Optimist Club of El Centro would like to thank the citizens from throughout Imperial Valley who visited our fireworks stand (on South Fourth Street just outside El Centro) during the Fourth of July season to purchase fireworks from our club.
It is through the proceeds generated by this once-a-year fund raiser that our Optimist club is able to financially support the numerous youth activities that we do. Activities such as the PAL, the Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts, Literacy Volunteers, youth oratorical and essay contests, youth-oriented respect for law programs, a free swim day at the Plunge, numerous youth sports leagues, countywide athletic tournaments and many other youth activities are all annually supported by the proceeds from our fireworks stand.
The Optimist Club of El Centro could not accomplish our goals of being the "friend of youth" without our community's support of our fireworks stand. Again, the Optimist Club would like to thank the Imperial County community for their kind patronage of our fireworks stand. We hope to see you again next year.
