Easter Egg Hunt

Every spring, the Saturday just before Easter, the club sponsors an Easter Egg Hunt. This fun event is free for children 2-9 at one of the Centerville Washington Park District’s locations (usually Forest Field Park on Centerville Station Road.)

Prizes are awarded to children who find the special gold colored eggs as well as age group prizes.

While the event always starts at 10 am, it is advisable to be there and lined up early. The more than 6,000 candy filled eggs disappear quickly as the children race into the field to uncover all the surprises.

Stick around after the event to have your picture taken with our Easter Bunny.

The 2018 Easter Egg Hunt is on Saturday March 31st @ 10AM @ Forest Field Park in Centerville.


Successful Christmas Tree Drive

Centerville Noon Optimist completed another very successful Christmas Tree Sale this season. This annual fundraiser generates about one third of the budget for the kids activities sponsored by the Optimist club. Also, much fellowship is had by club members serving together to make the Christmas tree lot run smoothly.

Respect for Law

Optimists promote respect for law and an active interest in civic affairs by sponsoring two annual awards – John P. Kalaman Respect for Law; and Robert J. O’Toole EMT/Firefighter of the Year.  Both awards recognize those in our community who exceed expectations in serving the community
