Holiday Happenings


Most Optimist Clubs perform some type of Christmas event. Could it be because of the youth connection?  Maybe...I know that is sure what brings the most smiles to the most faces.  Here is a look at a few activities in our Optimist Club communities:
  • The Optimist Club of Parry Sound, Ontario coordinated the biggest Santa Claus Parade ever.
  • The Noon Optimist Club of Boise, Idaho helped throw a party with Santa at MSTI for kids with cancer and their families.
  • The Optimist Club of Jerome, Idaho served up free Breakfast with Santa to the entire community.
  • The Mt. Holly Optimist Club of Gastonia, N. Carolina presented free Breakfast with Santa.
  • The Optimist Club of Anguilla celebrated Fete d'Noel.
  • The Optimist Club of Twin Falls, Idaho gave Head Start students and families a dinner party with Santa and presents.

These are just a few examples of how Optimist Clubs and Christmas come together.  Please provide a comment below and tell us about the Holiday Happenings in your Optimist Club!
