We meet most Friday mornings from 6:30 am – 7:30 am at the Das Dutchman Essenhaus.

What goes on at an Optimist meeting?  We enjoy a special breakfast menu provided by the Essenhaus just for the Optimist Club.  Our meetings are opened with a prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance.  We share announcements, fellowship and humor while waiting for the food to be prepared.  After our meal, we are all given an opportunity to share with the club a special optimistic event from our week.  The main event of the morning is a program provided by a guest speaker who shares about local events and topics. We honor outstanding youth in our community at many of the morning meetings. We close the meetings with reciting the Optimist Creed.
