Welcome to the web site of the Lakeshore Optimist Club of Grosse Pointe. We have served Metro Detroit east side communities for over 30 years as part of Optimist International. Our members come from all over the Metro area.
Optimist International is a worldwide volunteer organization made up of more than 2,500 local Clubs whose Members work to make the future brighter by bringing out the best in children, in their communities, and in themselves. Click the Programs link for a list of some of the organizations and activities the Lakeshore Optimist Club proudly sponsors.
We give a lot to our community, but we can't do it alone. This year, as a fundraiser to support our programs, we are holding our third annual Choose Your Cruise Raffle - the lucky winner will cruise the Western Mediterranean, Alaska or the Caribbean, or perhaps visit the Disney All-Star Resort in Orlando. Each cruise is for two people, except the Disney 'Land Cruise' which is for two adults and two children. The winner will also receive an additional $1,000 cash to help cover those little extras.
While you're here, check out The Optimist Creed link. The Optimist Creed is a vital part of who we are. If that's the kind of person you are, or the kind of person you aspire to be, maybe you should be an Optimist.
