Friend of Youth
Among the many things the Cape Girardeau Noon Optimist Club does, one that we especially are involved in is the Melaina’s Magical Playground project–a project to build a playground that is fully-accessible to all children. The Cape Girardeau Noon Optimist Club is a Diamond Sponsor of this endeavor.
