The Optimist Creed, always

Over the years, I've discovered that Optimist Club meetings vary in style in substance. Some offer informative speakers so that Optimist Club members can learn about what's happening in their communities, among other things. Others focus on business and the Optimist Club members make plans for how they will serve more people and more causes. A few focus on fun and tell jokes and share social time with their community of friends.

However, one thing remains constant. No matter where you travel, an Optimist Club meeting will always begin or end with the Optimist Creed. In the following video, the Optimist Club of Apple Valley, CA shares its rendition of the Optimist Creed featuring the most important part of any club: its people. Enjoy.
