Optimist Creed

NOW dinner meetings:  Recruiting new members.

At this time there are about 45 members ranging in age from 18 to  95+.  We represent various cultures, vocations, interests, and abilities.   There is always a need for a greater membership  as we expand our program to  meet the interests of our community and the individual abilities and interests of our members.

Service to youth and community has been the foremost principle of the Optimist Clubs for more than 90 years.

Friend Of Youth

Winter  Haven  Optimist  Club

Promise Yourself :

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
