Optimist Steer Club

By dhowell - Posted on 03 January 2008

The steer calves were purchased by a committee of Optimist Club members and fathers of Steer Club members and were allotted by a drawing to the boys and girls. The financing is arranged by the Union Savings Bank with the notes endorsed by members of the Manchester Optimist Club. All profits from the sale go to the club members.

The steers were purchased in November 1966 from Elmer Rohroback and were insured.

Working on the Optimist Steer Committee with chairman Norman Buckholtz were Earl Mann and Tom Walton with assistance from Maynard Blossom, vocational-agricultural teacher, and Dr. H. P. Eames.

Special awards to Steer Club members were donated by Grossman-Huber, L. V. Kirk Electric and Tom Marshall, Inc.

The Union Savings Bank was host to Steer Club members, their fathers and buyers at last year's sale at a noon luncheon Thursday, August 24 at Emanuel Church Hall.
