Easter signifies that the seasons have changed and the warm weather makes us want to get outside and play. Of course, April showers sometimes interferes with our best-laid plans, but if you're an Optimist Club, you don't let a little thing like rain get you down. You adapt!
And that is exactly what the Chehalis-Centralia Optimist Club did. On April 19, the day of their publicized and anticipated April Pools Day and Bike Rodeo, the rain moved the celebration indoors at Thorbeckes FitLife Aquatic Center.

According to the Centralia-Chehalis Optimist Club, the day was a big success. "One heck of a good time was had by all," claims its Facebook page. For the Bike Rodeo, over 60 kids enjoyed an indoor imaginary bike ride and were tested on their safe biking skills. The club also gave away 2 children's bikes in a raffle.
For April Pools, the kids went swimming, played in a float boat, finished a coloring contest and visited with officers from the police and fire departments.

The Optimist Club and Thorbeckes worked together to ensure the children had a great time and the smiles demonstrated to the community just how fun it is to belong to this great group of caring adults.
