About The Optimist Club of Clayton
The Optimist Club of Clayton was chartered on February 8, 1946 in Clayton, Missouri. Through service projects the Optimist Club of Clayton has contributed over $500,000 into the St. Louis community.
Our major fund raising activity is a Christmas tree lot. The lot opens the weekend after Thanksgiving and remains open until all the trees are sold. All profits from the tree lot are distributed among the children’s charities we support.
