St. Paul Optimist Club Celebrates 95 Years!

In 1924, the St. Paul Optimist Club was chartered as a service club, and part of Optimist International. The club history includes a commitment to serving the youth of the St. Paul community and has evolved its membership and programs over time.  Through local events, civic involvement, and scholarship programs, the members celebrated this milestone!
