What we do

  • We encourage children to succeed academically and to participate in making their communities a better place.

  • We recognize outstanding students in all Oregon School District Schools, culminating in the Ina and Maynard Stoehr Optimist Scholarship awarded to one OHS senior every year.

  • We recognize adult members of our villages for their contributions to the well-being of the community, be it through volunteer or professional activities, including honoring at least one local police officer each year for outstanding service.

  • We engage in community service, participate in community events, and sponsor family friendly events.

  • We provide financial support to various youth activites and public safety enhancements.

  • We maintain a childhood cancer fund to help families facing the challenges of childhood cancer.
