Every meeting of the Optimist Club is fun as well as productive. You will never meet a better group of civic minded and enthusiastic people. After a meeting, you can't help but be positive, optimistic, and ready for the next challenge! 

If you need a boost to your week, you need to join the Optimist Club and come to our Friday meetings. As one speaker said, "If I could just bottle up the enthusiasm and energy in this room and sell it, I'd be rich!".
 
Every Friday we meet at 7:00 am for breakfast, fellowship and to learn about the community through guest speakers that cover a wide variety of interesting topics. A few of the speakers we have recently hosted are: MPO Louis Defense III, Public Information Officer of the Smyrna Police Department, our own Mr. Wayne Waldrip bringing us up to speed on the much anticipated “Connect the Comet” to the proposed Atlanta Beltline, Ms. Allison Carter, Director of the Cobb County Safety Village located on Al Bishop Road, Mr. Jeff Searcy, Head Baseball Coach, Campbell High School and many others. Come join us!
