Breese Optimists Seek Support For Playground Project

The club has committed $50,000 toward the project and is filing a request for a state grant. Part of the grant process is community support, so Breese Chamber of Commerce members are being asked to submit a letter backing the Optimists Club’s project.

Letters can be submitted by e-mail to Mayor Charlie Hilmes at This must be done by Friday, August 16.
