The Mansfield Noon Optimistic Club spent ninety-minutes Wednesday, doing something good for the community, prior to its lunchtime meeting. Two club members stationed themselves in the lobby of the Holiday Inn, taking donations of coats and other winter clothing items for children. Carolyn Simmering says the club tries to do all it can for needy children and families. A Mansfield woman came in with a large donation of eight coats, plus knit hats and gloves, after going shopping. Barbara Fraifogl says she had fun looking for the items and wanted to go back to the stores again. The Noon Optimist Club expected to collect at least 100 coats, hats, scarves, and gloves. They'll be given to Grace Episcopal Church at Third and Bowman Streets.
