An Optimist Club is a voluntary organization of civic-minded men and women banded together for
progressive thought and action in community service. Membership, is composed of citizens drawn from business, industry, agriculture and the professions. Members are motivated by the desire to contribute to the community from which they and their families draw daily benefits. There is no greater opportunity for participation in community affairs and service than in an Optimist club.

The purposes of the Optimist club are to develop Optimism as a philosophy of life; to promote an active
interest in good government and civic affairs; to inspire respect for the law; to promote patriotism and work
for international accord and friendship amoung all people; to aid and encourage the development of youth,
in the belief that the giving of one's self in service to others will advance the well-being of man, his community
and world.

Club Costs: Our dues are $140.00 per year, payable as $35.00 per quarter. Dues include, membership costs, buffet meals at our meetings, Optimist magazine subscription. We have no joining fee for new members. Your check should be made out to "Weddington Optimist Club" and brought to the next meeting.
