Welcome to the website of the Farmington/Farmington Hills Breakfast Optimist Club. We are a community service organizations focused on supporting programs for youth in Farmington and Farmington Hills, Michigan. Please feel free to look around! If you like what you see and you are looking for an opportunity to serve the young people in our community, we invite you to join us for breakfast almost any Wednesday morning at John Cowley & Sons pub in downtown Farmington. Check our web site calendar for specific meeting dates, speakers and times.
If you come to breakfast, you’ll find that we’re a congenial group of dedicated adults who live and/or work in Farmington and Farmington Hills. We come from a wide variety of backgrounds, but we all share a love of our communities and a desire to provide hope and positive vision to the young people who reside and attend school here. Optimists bring out the best in kids!
Our 7:30 a.m. Wednesday breakfast meetings (no meeting the first Wednesday of the month) are a great time for fellowship and for learning from informative speakers, but our real focus is on kids. Some of the many programs we offer young people are essay and oratorical contests, golf tournaments, fishing lessons, After School and Naturalist Program, Jr.Optimist Program and opportunities for civic involvement and leadership training.
We support local organizations that provide programming and opportunities for children, especially those who have been touched by cancer and other significant challenges. We also support optimism as a way of life by promising ourselves "to think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best".
Please come and check us out! I promise you will not be disappointed.
