The McPherson Optimist Stars and Stripes Flag program is a great way to be patriotic while also giving back to the community.  We will fly a flag at your home or business for you five times a year!

McPherson Optimist Club serves over 1400 hot dogs, chips and cookies to the kids from the grade schools in the city.

The GIFT (Gifts Inteded for Teens) Program was started in 1995 to fill a need in our community where kids that age out of the Toys for Tots program would continue to receive gifts at Christmas time.

Easter Egg Hunt

The McPherson Optimist Club invites the youth of the community from ages 0 to 12 to join us the Saturday before Easter for a free community-wide Easter Egg Hunt.

Join us for an evening full of fun, games, prizes, costumes, and food!  We can’t wait to see all the great costumes and smiling faces.

The Mid America Classic is a high school girls basketball tournament. It is one of the largest fund raisers of the year and provides for many of the donations we make communities youth each year.
