OPTIMISTS SLOW DOWN PICNIC – The El Dorado Springs Optimist Club brought two new games to the 2020 Picnic – horseshoes and cornhole. Each game began about 10:30 a.m. and ended after noon. Cornhole was played on the tennis courts and the horseshoes were played at the new pits that the Optimists built just north of the tennis courts.
