The Optimist Club of Littleton (OCL) was established in 1959 and has experienced a rich history of service to the Littleton community with its primary focus on serving youth. Our history and highlights are shown on the About Us page.
OCL is a member of Optimist International which is a worldwide volunteer organization made up of more than 2,500 local Clubs and is active in the Colorado-Wyoming District. (See the Optimist International page.)
In a few words the club: 
*  Has been functioning for many many years
*  Positive impact on kids 
    ie  Brain Bowl, Know Brainer, HOBY Awards, Essay and Oratorical contests. 
*  This is where you find Comradery and make Friendships. 
*  The club is Dedicated to serving community
*  Flies American flags at downtown businesses every holiday
   "Pride in the America Flag"  
Perhaps more telling of WHO OCL is can be found in the Optimist Creed which we end every meeting with:
  • 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 of 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 about the mistakes of the past and move 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
The club meets regularly at 7 am on Friday morning at East Community Center located at 5933 S Fairfield St, Littleton, CO 80120.
