The Redlands Optimist Club is a local service organization dedicated to helping the youth of Redlands and surrounding communities.
It is part of Optimist International, which is made up of more than 2600 service clubs in the United States and several other nations. The Redlands club, comprised of community business professionals, retirees, and area service workers has benefitted the community in a variety of ways since its founding in 1947. The Optimist Motto is Friend of Youth, and club members benefit the young men and women of our community through service in a variety of ways. We all try to live by the tenets of the Optimist Creed, a statement of principles by which Optimists try to live their lives. If these represent the values that you hold, please join us in making our community better.
