Grand Old Day - Promote Kids Reading

Each year the St. Paul Optimist Club joins with the local St. Paul community to march in the annual Grand Old Day Parade, which kicks off the summer season for kids/families, and is always held on the first Sunday in June. 
One of the key purposes or tenets of being an Optimist Club Member is to "to aid and encourage the development of youth", and we do that by passing out bookmarks to all the kids we see along the parade route.
Promoting the benefits of reading during the summer months provides positive validation and encourages active learning. 

St. Paul Optimist Club - Optimists in Action

Optimists have always believed in making a difference—a difference to children, to citizens in need, to fellow Optimists, to themselves. Optimists also believe that the best way to make a difference is through action—positive action.
As a result, the month of May has been declared Optimists in Action Month. During the month of May, Optimist Clubs will create a widespread spirit of unity bringing together Optimist Members and other community volunteers for a variety of local-based activities, fundraisers and special events.

Optimist Club Sock Drive

The Optimist Club of St. Paul sponsored a winter Sock Drive to help homeless kids in St. Paul with Safe Zone! This event was done in partnership with Twin Cities Public Television as part of their Second Saturdays event.  The club worked with TPT  to host an event that included sock collection.
