♥  Make A Difference In A Childs Life

Thank you for your interest in the Optimist Club of Paris, Texas

Our motto is “Friend of Youth”. We have been making Paris, Texas a better place to be a kid since 1955.

We are best known for our Baseball program ages 3 through 14, but in addition to these, we have an annual fund raising Auction and Community service awards.

Essay Contests, Oratorical Contests, Appreciation for Law, Junior Golf, Easter Egg Hunts, and Toys for Kids Tournaments are just a few of the programs that we have hosted in the past but we simply do not have the volunteers to run.  If any of these programs are something you would be interested in helping to get started again, PLEASE contact us. Of course we always need more help with the Baseball program and the Auction each year.

If we sound like a club you would be interested in, contact our Executive Director, Savanha Barnes at sbarnes@parisoptimist.org. Please feel free to come visit one of our meetings, we will be more than happy to have you as a guest. We normally meet on the 2nd Monday of each month at Woodall Field in the meeting room at 6:30 PM. Dues in the club are $75 per year. Please know that to help, you don’t have to become a member.
