Club History

The Optimist Creed

Promise Yourself: 

• To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

• To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.

• To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.

• To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

• To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

• To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

• To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

• To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile. 

• To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

• To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.


Optimist membership offers several opportunities for leadership development. Fellowship is what we give back to each other for all our hard work. (You can’t be an Optimist without having a little fun!) Service to others is part of our mission. Often, these events provide all three benefits!

Community Service

The primary purpose of the Sheboygan Optimist Club is to participate in community service initiatives that serve Sheboygan’s youth. We continually seek new opportunities to get involved and make a difference!


The Sheboygan Optimists meet for lunch on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month at the Sheboygan Yacht Club from 12:00-1:15 pm.


Our ability to help children is dependent on our ability to raise funds from the generous citizens and businesses in our community. New and innovative ways to raise funds are always welcomed!
