Our Optimist Club Featured on “Centerville Reports Today” Television Show!

Our club was recently featured on the television show Centerville Reports Today.  Mike Bevis and Judy DeMarco served as club ambassadors to discuss our Community Champion Award as well as the many free youth activities and fund raisers that our club holds throughout the year as “Friends of Youth”.

About Our Members – Why Not Join us?

Thank you for your interest in the Noon Optimist Club of Centerville. If you are already a member, thank you. You are one of more than 300 members who understand the need to “Bring Out the Best in Kids!” You are involved in many of the club’s activities and events and know the Optimist Creed by heart. Centerville Noon Optimists get things accomplished in our community. We set examples and embrace an optimistic mindset for all to see. We display leadership skills and working relationships locally, regionally and nationally. We reach out and help young people.

Please join us any Tuesday for a free lunch at noon at Yankee Trace Golf Clubhouse. Our meetings are always fun and informative. Having a tough day and need a little “Optimism?” See you next Tuesday! You will be a stranger for all of five seconds.

Unable to join us at Lunch on Tuesdays?  Optimist 2.0 is for you. We meet every third Thursday at various local venues to enjoy 60-90 minutes of fun, networking, a guest speaker and an opportunity to join a group of folks dedicated to helping local kids. Information on Optimist 2.0 is here.
