Optimist Day – February 1, 2018
Members of Optimist International will celebrate Optimist Day throughout the world the first Thursday of February (2/1/2018) to promote our efforts in bringing out the best in youth, our communities and ourselves.
On Optimist Day, Optimists around the world are asked to wear Optimist attire – shirts, pins, hats, etc.
Optimists in the GATEway district (Georgia and Tennessee) are urged to participate in the Child ID Kit program on February 1. A supply of ID Kits is purchased by individual clubs, and Optimists distribute these publicly to local parents. Ask your club president if your local club is participating.
Club presidents, we urge you to contact your local mayor, etc. to proclaim our Optimist Day. See Optimist Day Proclamation.
