What We Do

Grant Banner updated 3-7-14

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 the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month at 12:00 Noon. We use local restaurants and businesses 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 others fellowship through socials.
