About the Loveland Optimist Club
One of over 2,500 clubs in Optimist International

Why do I like the club? All efforts help our local community - children and adults. The ability to get fresh ideas from District and OI (Opt. Int.) who do not dictate what we do but help and encourage us to make a difference.
