Rocking a great time with the Jerome Optimist Club

Every day, Optimist Clubs perform amazing projects with an emphasis on activities that help children be the best they can be. This was especially true for the Jerome, Idaho Optimist Club on May 7, 2018, at one of its favorite programs, the Special Needs Fishing Derby.

Co-chairperson of the event, Sheri Mitchell, shared the following photos and this message:
"The Jerome Optimist Club is so lucky to have had beautiful weather and sunshine for its annual Special Needs Fishing Derby. The JOC has joined the Martin Farms Family for 40 years with the Special Needs Fishing Derby. We are so lucky that the Jerome School District still allows us to open our hearts and fish for lots of fun. We had over 150 students, plus their teachers, aids and parents, as well as, 9 Optimist Members, 23 Jerome High School Students and 41 other community volunteers. We rocked at a great time!!!"


Thanks to Sheri for sharing the #OptimistsinAction story with us and many thanks to the Jerome Optimist Club and participating community members for making a special day for some special children.

Share optimism by sharing your Optimist Club projects

The #beanoptimistchallenge continues through May 31, 2018, and the PNW Optimist Clubs website is playing along. We are highlighting some of the projects that Optimist Clubs do in their communities. Today we look at the Beaverton Optimist Club, the North Okanagan Optimist Club, and the Middleton Area Optimist Club.

The Beaverton Optimist Club has been providing community service with roadside clean-up for many years. This year it added some extra hands with some youthful volunteers.


In Vernon, BC, the North Okanagan Optimist Club sponsors a huge, community-wide Unplug and Play Week. One of the objectives is to help children and families find the outdoors again. In this picture, a muse leads a group of children on a musical adventure.


The Middleton Area Optimist Club partners with the Middleton Rural Fire District to host its fundraising bingo nights, among other things. In return, the club helps the Fire District with its events like raising money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. At bingo, they make a muscle for the brave individuals affected by this disease.

Please share a photo and story - a few lines will do - about the projects that your Optimist Club performs in your community so we can celebrate your successes with you. Thanks for all that you do as an Optimist Club member.
