Welcome to the Colorado/Wyoming Optimist District

The theme for this year is: Vision 2020

That vision includes raising the awareness of Optimism in our communities. Yes we have plans to grow our membership, but the focus will be on club vitality: Let’s make our clubs so fun and rewarding that the public will want to be a part of it! Clubs are the center of the Optimist universe, and we are here to support and serve you. I’m looking forward to an exciting journey, and to serving you in the coming year.

4/27/2020 COVID-19 Response

The COVID-19 restrictions put in place on March 17th have been extended by Optimist International to “at least” May 30th.

We will continue to monitor the guidance of our local and national leaders and obey the guidelines issued in our respective jurisdictions.

Optimists have proven to be resilient during this crisis. Many clubs are continuing to meet virtually. One of the most popular ways to do that is through ZOOM Meetings.

If you are unfamiliar with how to join a ZOOM meeting, here are two easy to follow instruction videos to help get you started:
