Mecosta Optimists sponsors meditation bench at Angels of Action

BIG RAPIDS — The Mecosta County Optimists organization recently made a donation to brighten a part of downtown Big Rapids. 

The Mecosta County chapter of Optimists International was chartered Aug. 31, 2021, and since then, members have been networking with local leaders in the area on various projects. 

The organization made some money from their Flannel and Frost Fundraiser. Members voted to give some funds to Angels of Action and suggested a meditation bench.

Angels of Action jumped on the idea, and Tuesday, Sept. 20, members from both organizations gathered at the rock garden to install and celebrate the newest addition to the location.
