The Optimist Club of Solano County will be participating in Optimist International’s Optimist Day on February 2, 2017. Members of Optimist International will celebrate Optimist Day throughout the world the first Thursday of every February to promote their efforts in helping and recognizing the people that make a difference in their communities.
“Our Optimist Club’s number one priority is helping the children of this community. Optimist
Day will be awareness to our community about our Club and our mission,” Club President Christina Baird said. “With Optimist Day, we hope to be able to get more people involved
and bring more projects to the children of the community who need it most.”
The Optimist Club of Solano County has been supporting local youth since 1996. Programs and service projects that the Club is involved in include the annual essay contest, Festival of Trees and Kid Fest.

best in children, in their communities, and in themselves. Optimists conduct positive service
