Offering a helping hand to youth is a key mission for the country’s 2,900 Optimist Clubs, and no less so in Brookings, where local Optimists just gave the city $10,000 for new playground equipment in Hillcrest Park. Making the presentation to Mayor Tim Reed (right) at last week’s city council meeting were Optimists Sally Damm and Mac Harris. Harris, club president, says the service group wanted to update the park playground near the heavily used Hillcrest Aquatic Center. He said the club plans to make a similar presentation next year, for use for equipment in the new Dakota Nature Park.
