Optimist civic club celebrates its special day

MOREHEAD, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Optimist Club of Morehead invites community members to celebrate Optimist Day proclaimed by Rowan County Judge Executive Harry Clark on February 4, 2021.

With the global pandemic continuing to affect the lives of people around the world, Optimists are choosing Optimism.

“Now more than ever, we recognize the need to choose optimism,” Optimist Club President Bill Redwine explained, “Our number one priority is helping children in our community.”

Optimist members continue to find optimism by reciting the Optimist Creed. The Creed is nearly a century old but holds great importance. It is a promise that one makes to themselves to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind; to talk health, happiness, and prosperity to everyone you meet; and to press on to the greater achievements of the future, among other things.

The Optimist Club of Morehead has been supporting local youth since 1964.

Programs and service projects that the Club is involved in include sponsoring the T-Ball league for Morehead Parks & Recreation, Tri-Star Basketball, Respect for Law, Essay and Oratorical Competitions and countless other youth programs through their charitable bingo programs at Cave Run Bingo.
