The Apple Valley Optimist Club is gearing up for a March 10 awards dinner to toast Archie and Lois Hardy along with Jack Fales — followed by a roast of Chris Hitt.
Optimist Club mainstays Lois and Archie Hardy have always been first in line to work on fundraising events, said Optimist Vicky Murray. They’ve also helped provide Christmas to local families
and led a monthly program that gives honor to the school children at the various schools.
