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 held our first annual Choose Your Cruise Raffle - the winner chose the 7-day Mediterranean cruise for two people, and will receive an additional $1,000 cash to help cover those little extras. Our members, friends and supporters came through with a great ticket-selling effort, and we're looking forward to even more success in the second annual Choose Your Cruise Raffle, beginning later in 2015.

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.
