Happy New Optimist Club Year!

October 1 marks the fresh start of the Optimist International administrative year.  Optimist Clubs around the world install new officers and plan for the next year of service to their communities.  As we move forward, we say thank you to our retiring Optimist International President Don Sievers and welcome to our new President Mark O. Shriver, IV.

Optimist Clubs share a mission and vision of providing hope and positive vision to bring out the best in children.  Each year the new president chooses an theme to motivate the clubs and members to action.  President Shriver has chosen an eagle to symbolize reaching for the best and with a promise to yourself to share your optimism...for the kids.
