to "Bring Out the Best in Kids." We organize and participate in
hands-on, interactive projects for kids. These projects range from Oratorical
Contests to Youth Appreciation activities. As an Optimist Member, not only
will you be connected to your local community, you'll also boast affiliation
with about 87,000 Optimists around the world.
