The Optimist Club of Deerfield is one of over 2,900 clubs worldwide dedicated to "bringing out the best in kids." We are a voluntary organization that conducts positive service projects with the aim of community service. The Optimist motto is "Friend of Youth", and we have been serving the Deerfield community since 1972.
Since each Optimist group is run locally, each local group can choose the programs that it feels will best serve its community.
Deerfield Optimists are asked to do the following:
- Attend as many meetings as your schedule will allow
- Participate in service projects
- Use your imagination to come up with new positive projects
- Eventually serve on project committees and possibly the club board
Our hope is to help our local youth, and maybe allow them to discover the joy in helping others. We try to do so with an upbeat attitude and a pride in serving our community.
We would love to have you join us! If you're interested in joining, or just interested in getting more information, you can click on the "Officers" tab at the top of the page, or you can just click here.
