The 7th District Optimist Club, located in Bushwood, Maryland, currently has 128 members. We strongly believe in the "Friend of Youth" motto as shown by our strong community involvement and youth-driven activities, scholarships and fundraisers.
Established in 1967 with 41 charter members, the 7th District Optimist Club has since operated continually to benefit the youth in St. Mary's County and Southern Maryland.
We participate in all the classic Optimist activities, including the Junior Golf Tournament, Oratorical Contest, College Scholarship, Youth Safety Week, and Respect for Law Week, but also have many of our own youth-friendly activities.
As a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation, we rely heavily on our fundraising events to help manage the costs associated with our youth events.
Please visit our Events & Fundraisers page to find out about upcoming activities. Our "Landmark" fundraiser has always been the Blessing of the Fleet, so please visit that page to find out more about its history and the date for this year's Blessing.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF THE 7TH DISTRICT OPTIMIST CLUB!
