Optimist Club of Greater Vienna
Club and Membership Information
The Vienna Optimists meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month. Most often we meet at the Fairfax American Legion in Fairfax. Occasionally we mix it up with a social event elsewhere. Our mission is "Bringing Out the Best in Youth".
We're a pretty active group of adults of all ages. Our biggest fundraisers that enable us to honor youth in the Greater Vienna area are our Farmers Market each Saturday from May through October and our Christmas tree sales in December. We also honor law enforcement, sponsor oratory contests, Special Olympics, Helping Hands (rewarding community-minded youth), and more (check out our activities link). You can also follow us on Facebook and MeetUp.
We have two membership opportunities. Full membership dues are billed quarterly and cover the cost of all of meals at our meetings. The Friend of the Optimist - a FOO - is paid directly to Optimists International and then the FOO pays the Optimist Club of Greater Vienna for the cost of your meals. There is a $35 application fee as well. Part of our dues are paid to Optimists International and the rest go to the club.
If you are interested in more information, you can email our Vice President of Membership by clicking or visit the About Us page for other Board Members.
