The Laurel-London Optimist Club chartered in October 1981. Our club is made up of 55 civic-minded members and is 100% voluntary. We operate 365 days a year raising funds and conducting events for the area youth.
Since it began, the Laurel-London Optimist Club has lived up to its motto “Friend of Youth.” The club has served the youth of Laurel County by offering academic, safety and leisure activities. The Club has also been the primary provider of organized sports for school aged youngsters.
In addition, the Club provides eight annual college scholarships, host a kid’s fishing tournament and many more activities for our youth. Through the help of our country and city governments, business people of the community and our members, we operate a 23 acre facility which is located just off West Highway 80 at Sinking Creek Rd. (1535) in London, Kentucky.
The Laurel-London Optimist Club meets every Monday evening at 7:00 PM at the Optimist Club Sports Center.
