The Optimist was able to present a check for $2,000 to the PTA to be placed towards the Jefferson Intermediate School playground.  The check was made possible through the coordinated efforts of  PTA members and the Optimist Club in one of their major fund raisers.
This summer the PTA, as well as volunteers from the Bonham Theatre project coordinated with the Fairbury Optimist Club in selling fireworks at the Optimist fireworks stand.  The fireworks tent is one of the largest money making projects that the Optimist Club participates in during the year.  Having the additional support from members of two of the projects that will benefit from the fireworks proceeds also in turn helps support the Optimist members efforts.

Thayer Central Outlasts Fairbury In Five Sets

Thayer Central rallied from a 2-1 set deficit to outlast Fairbury in five sets last Tuesday evening on the Lady Titans home floor.
The Lady Titans won by scores of 25-20, 12-25, 14-25, 25-20, and 15-5.
Fairbury Lady Jeffs coach Ryan Evans was pleased with how the team played for most of the match.
“In the first half of the opening set the girls played really well. We got Thayer Central out of system with tough serving and swinging hard at the net. Once we got to 16 points we didn’t serve that tough, and we stopped swinging at the net. We started trying not to lose instead of playing to win, and that cost us the set,” Evans replied.
“In the second and third sets we came out and were fired up. The girls served the ball tough and where they wanted to. Our passes were going to our hitters and we were able to put the ball down on their side,” Evans said.
