Saturday, the Optimist Club held an outdoor breakfast with proceeds benefiting underprivileged children through the Buddy Backpack Program.

Optimist Club member Jerry Meyer hopes the event can raise a couple thousand dollars.

Funds will be divided between the Adair County Buddy Backpack Program and the club for its continued efforts in the community.
