Becoming a Member

We are always looking for people interested in joining our efforts to "Bring Out the Best in Kids."

Everyone is Welcome

The Sunrise Optimist Club welcomes men and women from all walks of life, all nationalities, and all religious affiliations. There are no secret handshakes, passwords, or initiation rites. If you have a willingness to serve our community, we welcome your fellowship and commitment to serve.


Members pay annual dues of $100.00. This amount includes dues for the Sunrise Optimist Club as well as for Optimist International, our parent organization. More important than money, our members give a reasonable amount of time to support the youth of our community through club activities.

What Do You Get in Return?

  • The fellowship of people who get things done...and the example they set for embracing a similiar mindset,
  • New social and working relationships with individuals from a cross section of our community,
  • The opportunity to develop and demonstrate leadership skills locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally,
  • And, the satisfaction of making a difference in the lives of children as well as our communities.

So How Do You Join?
