The St Cloud Morning Club received 1700 wooden toys from TLC Toys to distribute to needy children in our area.  Retired seniors make these toys all year long and give them away during the holidays.  Don presented Jim Barthel with $1,000  to show our gratitude for the wonderful things TLC does.  This year TLC Toys also made wood ornaments  for seniors to paint.  Optimists will deliver these items to children in our area and the wood cutouts will go to senior community centers.
