Kids Day in the Park:
Saturday, August 4, 2018 has been announced as the date for "Optimist
Kid's Day in the Park" this year. This is a program, sponsored by Kettering Noon Optimist Club, which presents a day with a multitude of fun activities
for kids, Kindergarten
to 8th Grade, held annually
at Delco Park at 1700 Delco Park Drive, in Kettering. Over a dozen Optimist clubs will participate by each setting up their own event for kids to enjoy. Last year was the first year for
Northridge Optimist Club participation, and members are looking forward to joining in again this year. The Northridge Optimist
event theme was rocket launching.
Some links of interest to the Northridge area are posted on the Northridge
Optimist Club website Bulletin Board Page (under "Other Northridge Links"). One is for The Northidge Alumni Bear Facts website
by The Northridge Alumni Association, and also the Northridge Schools website, and the Northridge Schools facebook page. One
good way to show support of the community is to patronize the alumni businesses that are listed on the alumni website: http://www.northridge alumni.org/id11.html
