Proceeds from membership dues and activities, fundraiser events, and rentals of the Shelby Optimist Club building in the Shelby Industrial Park are earmarked for donations to youth and community needs and events.
New members are always welcome. Unless otherwise indicated, meetings for the current year take place every other Wednesday from early September through approximately mid-May at Stony Lake Inn from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Membership dues are $100 annually.
