The Barge Canal, Lockport, Monday Night Cruise and Sunrise Optimist clubs will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Optimist International by hosting a Joint Optimist Mixer from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday March 19 at Lock 34 Bar & Grill, 80 Main St. All community members are welcome at the admission-free mixer.
Lockport is home to multiple, active Optimist clubs which all have the purpose to develop Optimism as a philosophy of life utilizing the tenets of the Optimist Creed. Optimists have a positive approach, an upbeat outlook, and commitment to creating a more optimistic future for children. All local clubs are seeking new members.
“We seek women and men of good character with a keen interest in serving our community," mixer co-chair Peggy Allen said. “In order to serve youth and community effectively, a club must have able, dedicated members.”
“It is not often that one has the opportunity to meaningfully affect the lives of others,” added mixer co-chair Pauline Leacock. “Through Optimist Club membership you will have this chance. With you we can be a better Optimist community!”
For more information, or to reserve a spot at the mixer, contact Peggy Allen at 434-9708 or firstname.lastname@example.org; or Pauline Leacock at 438-0890 or email@example.com. Read up on the mixer at the Barge Canal Optimist Facebook page.
