The mission of the Optimist Club of the Monroe-Area is to serve the local community with a variety of positive programs and activities which will benefit the youth of the community. It is our belief that by promoting the tenets of the Optimist Creed, and the Purposes of Optimism, we will improve the quality of life for our Club members and the community in general. Through the use of our Club’s many and varied resources, we will strive to provide the youth of our community with a wide variety of opportunities to grow, compete and prosper as individuals, and as the future leaders of their community. To strengthen our ability to achieve our goals, the Club will provide a variety of forums for the social interaction of its members, as a means of promoting the camaraderie we all seek and enjoy. In all aspects of its activities, the Club will represent itself, through its members, as responsible and contributing citizens of the local community.
