As our motto is "Friend of
the Youth" the focus of our club is geared to helping the youth from
programs ranging from Bicycle Safety to our Youth
Group. With more that a dozen program deserving high school
seniors, these efforts could not be successfully accomplished without adequate
fund raising efforts. Fund raising is an integral part of the club's
activities. Our fund raiser can be fun as well as hard work but it is
always a source of camaraderie and accomplishment each year.
Optimism is believing in the best
for our future. The Suburban Optimist Club provides the opportunity to
help play a major role in the development of our future leaders of tomorrow.
