Hats off to supporting merchants
Hats off to the more than 300 area merchants that purchased ticket packages for the recent Jose Cole Circus. Children’s tickets were distributed to seven area grade schools as well as nearly 20 area groups and organizations involving youth. A big thank you to all the merchants as well as the hundreds of children and adults in attendance at the circus who helped make the event a success from the Willmar Optimist Club. The proceeds will go to sponsor the Optimist track meet, the Optimist cross-country meet and financial contributions to various other groups and causes involving area youth.
