Since its founding over 41 years ago, the Optimist Club of Coronado has provided financial and volunteer support to continuous outstanding Scout programs in Coronado.  The achievements of the generations of cub, boy and girl scouts of Coronado add considerable luster to the history of our fair city.   Former Coronado scouts are currently serving communities across the USA in a variety of leadership positions.

Great scout programs are the result of leaders who willingly give of their time and energy to the scouts under their care.  The checks provided by the Optimist Club in the photo above are helpful but cannot compare to the countless hours volunteered by the leaders.  To Debbie, Jason, Bill and all the other adult leaders – the Optimists thank you.
