Our History

On February 10, 1966, a day which will live in the highest esteem of many youth in Southern California , forty eight eager and energetic individuals chartered the Optimist Club of Suburban Buena Park.

As our motto is "Each Child is a Winner in Our Eyes" the focus of our club is geared to helping the youth from programs ranging from Bicycle Safety to our Youth Youth Sports Group. With more that a dozen program deserving high school seniors, these efforts could not be successfully accomplished without adequate fund raising efforts. Fund raising is an integral part of the club's activities. Our fund raiser can be fun as well as hard work but it is always a source of camaraderie and accomplishment each year.

Our Mission

The Suburban Optimist Club of Buena Park’s mission is to provide the structure and leadership in support of the community through civic and youth oriented programs for families in Southern California and to provide the environment where tomorrow's leaders can build character, self-esteem and self-confidence.
