The Middleton Area Optimist Club was formed in 2010 to bring out the best in ourselves, the community, and especially the youth.
By providing hope and a positive vision, Optimists bring out the best in youth, our communities, and ourselves.
Optimist International will be recognized worldwide as the premier volunteer organization that values all children and helps them develop to their full potential.
To develop optimism as a philosophy of life utilizing the tenets of the Optimist Creed; to promote an active interest in good government and civic affairs; to inspire respect for the law; to promote patriotism and work for international accord and friendship among all people; to aid and encourage the development of youth, in the belief that the giving of one’s self in service to others will advance the well-being of humankind, community life, and the world.
We are a volunteer organization focused on helping our community through fundraising to support the youth. Some of our fundraising events include Bingo, Disc Golf, Cornhole, and Concessions. The money raised from these events allows us to bring the annual Fireworks show, Free Movies in the Park, Free family Bingo, and sponsor other youth activities.
We have partnerships with the Greater Middleton Parks and Rec, the Middleton Food Pantry, and the Middleton Public Library, which also supports the residents of our community.
We also partner with our Middleton Firefighters to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Leukemia & Lymphoma Society charities.
Our general membership meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of every month at 7:00 PM.
Meetings are held at Middleton Fire Station at 302 E. Main Street, Middleton, ID 83644.
