The Twin Falls Optimist Club wishes to recognize local youth for their efforts in the arts, community service work, academics and athletics. This program honors exceptional youth and highlights their positive contributions to our community. This year’s event will be held on April 12 at the StoneHouse at 11:45. School administrators will be asked to nominate students and invitations will go out in March. Our 2017 Youth Appreciation Luncheon was held at Canyon Crest on Thursday, May 4, 2017.
