A Civic Organization Dedicated to Helping Youth


The purpose of the club is to develop Optimism as a philosophy of life; to promote an active interest in good government and civic affairs; to inspire respect for the law; to promote patriotism and work for international accord and friendship among all people; to aide and encourage the development of youth.


The Spearfish Optimist Club is dedicated to supporting youth oriented programs and activities within the Spearfish community.  We do this by conducting minimal fund raisers with maximum benefits that we then grant to social, academic, and athletic youth groups.


We meet every Wednesday at 12:00 Noon at the Pizza Ranch.  We use the Howard Johnson breakfast room for the meetings and guest speakers.  During the month we use the meetings to learn about the organizations we grant to, we invite speakers to educate us, we tour various locations in the community, and enjoy each other’s fellowship through socials.
