Optimist Club of Knoxville

The Optimist Club of Knoxville (OCK) is a volunteer, civic organization, which serves our community through projects and interaction. Members are motivated by the desire to contribute back to the community by encouraging the development of youth.

OCKĀ  members develop optimism as a philosophy of life. We promote an active interest in good government and civic affairs, inspire respect for law, and promote patriotism and work for international accord and friendship.
