It's easy to see the glass half empty. In fact, in today's world, you must make a conscious effort to think positively. Some may say there is "power in positive thinking", while others may disagree. However, where negativity builds walls, closes doors and burns bridges. Positivity enables a synergy that tears down walls, opens doors and builds bridges. As The Glenpool Optimist Club it is our goal to empower our youth to think positively. To encourage the next generation to make a difference, in themselves and their community. To ignite a hope that if we so choose tomorrow will be better than today. We will strive to make a difference in our community through donations, fundraiser's and teamwork.
We choose to see the glass half full.
