Our amazing team of Lebanon Optimist Club members and part-time volunteers are committed to helping others. We turn our convictions into actions and make a difference in our community every day. Think you would be a good fit?
The Lebanon Optimist Club formed on July 18, 1994. Our club consists of community members from all walks of life. We are a diverse group of people who share the same goal - to help the youth of Lebanon. Several of our charter members are still active in our club.
Our Lebanon Optimist Club is affiliated with Optimist International. Optimists share a vision to be recognized worldwide as the premier volunteer organization that values all children and helps them develop to their full potential.

The money earned from our "Avenue of Flags" subscription service funds college scholarships for Lebanon High School seniors.
We place a 3' x 5' American Flag in front of your home or business on the following five holidays or flag weekends:
* Flag Day
* July 4th
* Labor Day
* Veteran's Day
Cost for 1 flag is $50/ year. Discounts for multiple flags.
Our Lebanon Optimist Club has great respect for all our law enforcement officers and first responders.
Each year we sponsor for the Lebanon Police Department their "Officer of the Year."
Our Police Chief receives nominations from the officers in the department. He reads through all the nominations and selects the officer of the year as chosen by the men and women of the department. Officer of the Year recipients have expressed that being selected "Officer of the Year" is a great honor since the winner is selected by his/her peers.
The Lebanon Optimist Club sponsors a luncheon honoring the officer of the year and a a plaque for the officer.
