We are part of Optimist International (www.Optimist.org) whose goal is to spread optimism everywhere! Our motto is: “Friend of Youth.” We raise funds to support such programs as Candlelighters, an organization that assists kids with cancer and their families. We have an annual scholarship for graduating high school seniors who plan to enter public safety. We also sponsor an annual oritorical contest. These are just a few of the many things in which we get involved.
Sometimes we work with the Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District in buliding playground equipment in local parks. Neighbors around the parks join us in the activity which always includes refreshments and goodies. We have also helped to build and maintain hiking trails at the Tualatin Hills Nature Center.
We would love for you to join us on these types of activities that promotes better living for our citizens through optimism. Check back to see what we are up to and learn how you can get involved. Another great way to learn about us is to attend our weekly Thursday breakfast at the Peppermill Restaurant in Aloha.
