ABOUT US
As a nonprofit that has served our community
for over 100 years,  Optimist recognizes the
value and need for innovative ideas and
initiatives. As a result, we created an advisory
group, the Optimist Professionals, in order
to garner support from our inventive and
energetic professionals in the community.  The Optimist Professionals functions as an advising council to our organization as we develop and grow and their primary focus areas include: fundraising, public relations and volunteerism.
