About Us




Past Projects

Brighton Optimist Club


Optimist Clubs are chartered to serve the youth of their communities. Sometimes that can be a pretty large area. Most Clubs participate in Optimist International's signature programs like the Oratorical Contest, which provides young people the opportunity to develop their public speaking skills and a chance to win college scholarships; the new Internet Safety Program, designed to inform both young people and their parents of potential online dangers and offering safe practice tips while online; and the Childhood Cancer Campaign, created in 2001 to be "the leading force to rid the world of childhood cancer". Clubs also conduct their own local service programs.

The Camel Race was an unqualified success. We are looking forward to supporting the youth of the area with the proceeds.  Thank you camel sponsors, door prize donors and all who attended the event for your generosity.  The 2015 Camel Race will be Saturday, February 7th, at Crystal Gardens.

We are replacing our last Thursday of the month evening meeting with a morning meeting. However, we will be starting a once a month social hour at rotating locations.  March 18th will be the first day we try this, location TBA.

The Brighton Optimist Club meets every Thursday morning at 7:30am at the Grand River Grill, 2394 Genoa Business Park Dr, Brighton 48114.  We have speakers of general interest the first three weeks, and a Club Business Meeting on the last Thursday of each month.   First time visitors eat for free.
