Buffalo Lafayette Optimist Club was a big hit at the Erie County Fall Festival last Saturday, October 2. Over 150 children took part in mini golf putting and Tic Tac Toe while the adults entered a drawing to hear about Optimism and the Buffalo Lafayette Optimist Club.
We had such a fun day getting to help Harrison Phillips pay it forward to all these future Playmakers (and maybe some football stars in the making!). We could not be more happy to have gotten to spend the day with some members of the Bills and local Rotarians. It’s amazing what can happen when you’re trying to make a difference! Thank you so much to Harrison and Coach Roz for letting us be a part of such a great event, we can’t wait to help again in the future! Here’s some photos our members were able to snag of the day!
We are so overwhelmed by the support and generosity shown by so many Optimists as we celebrated our charter party and the anniversary of the first Optimist Club meeting. We had so much fun getting to know you and spending time hearing about the amazing work that you are doing in your communities. We are so inspired by the work you all do and hope to follow in your footsteps making a difference in the lives of children in our community. Thank you so much for all who care out to celebrate, or celebrated in spirit with us.

Thank you so much to everyone who was able to make it out for this special meeting of the Buffalo Lafayette Optimist Club! It was a wonderful day, meeting with OI President Rebecca Butler Mona and Regional Vice President Cheryl Thames, learning more about the centennial year, and signing our incorporation papers! We’d also like to give an official welcome to newly inducted members, Tom, Mary and Karen, who had the privilege of getting inducted by President Rebecca!
