"Why" I joined the Optimist Club

“I joined the Optimist Club because I connected with the creed.  I try to live it out, as best I can, everyday.  I’m passionate about serving the youth in my community; I can do that with the club.”


“I’ve been a member since 1997, and felt it was a good way to make life better for kids in my community.  I really enjoy the friendships I’ve made as well.”


“There’s a great group of people here, leaders in the community.  We really do great things for the youth by being a part of the community.”
