Hello! The WBOC is a service club to the City of Wapakoneta, Ohio and surrounding areas.
We love to have fun while serving and do that in a number of ways, most prominently through our Lawnmower Percision Drill Team that “performs” at local parades. We’ve also been lucky to be semi-regulars to attend the Reds Opening Day Parade (Findlay Market Parade) and we love to entertain the masses!
All of the money we raise goes back into the community in some form. We have a scholarship fund, donate to the YMCA, have youth events like a fishing derby and tubing at Mad River Mountain and many other activities and contributions.
The club also has some big fundraisers to support these causes, mainly in the form of our Roast Beef Dinner and Pulled Pork Dinner. These are thankfully very graciously attended by the community and we thank them for this support!
We meet on Fridays at 8am at RJ’s Coffee Cup in Wapakoneta, Ohio. If you’d like to visit and see what it’s all about please let us know! We’ll buy the coffee… 😄
In short, we like to do good things for the youth of the community and have fun while doing it!
To Bring Out the Best in Kids!
The Wapakoneta Breakfast Optimist Club (WBOC) is a local non-profit service club that reaches out to the youth of the Wapakoneta community.
The Optimist Creed
To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
