About us and our history
Chartered on February 8th, 1990, the Optimist Club of West Bend helps to support positive, wholesome activities and awards for youth in our community. You'll hear a lot of people say: "Make a difference." The truth is that everyone makes a difference. The real question is: “What kind of difference will you make?” Make the most of each day – you never know what experiences will enhance the lives of others as well as yourself.
The Optimist Club of West Bend is dedicated to “Bringing out the Best in Kids.” Along with Optimist Clubs world-wide, we do this by supporting community service projects and organizations that positively impact the lives of children and by sponsoring award programs that honor the best in kids.
Since each Club is autonomous and run by the members from within their community, Optimist Clubs have the unique flexibility to more specifically serve the youth of their area in any way they see fit. When Optimist Clubs see a need in their community, they are able to react to it.
The Optimist Club of West Bend belongs to the SWIS District of Optimist International. To learn more about the SWIS District, click here.
