PINEHURST — Optimist Village Apartments, 3650 Optimist Way, Pinehurst, decked the halls and lighted the way for Santa Claus.

The complex is a subsidized non-profit organization that caters to the elderly and disabled sponsored by The Orange Noon Optimist Club.  

Sandy McCormick, former owner of The Grapevine, decorated the Community Center and made centerpieces for the residents to enjoy.

“We want our residents to enjoy Christmas,” Optimist Village Administrator Darlene Wissing said. “Sandy did such a beautiful job decorating the entrance way and the Community Center.”

It is the apartment complex sponsored by The Orange Noon Optimist Club in the United States.

The complex hosts several recreational events as well as seasonal parties for the residents throughout the year.
