Share the potential of Optimism

Optimist International is filled with statistics.  There are nearly 100,000 members in 3,000 Optimist Clubs spread out over 38 countries.  Together they perform more than 65,000 youth oriented projects each year.  It is estimated that the average member impacts at least 35 children annually. 

But sometimes it is a lot simpler just to say why it is important to belong and Bob Miller, President, Kalona Optimist Club, Kalona, Iowa recently did just that.  "Be an Optimist Club member and give back to the community," he said in an interview with the Kalona News.

So true!   Find the Optimist Club closest to you and join today.
