Welcome to the Michigan District


We are District 17 of Optimist International and encompasses 92 Optimist Clubs in the lower peninsula of Michigan . If you are new to Optimism, each Club is a member of one of 19 Zones in our District. Each Zone has a Lieutenant Governor, elected each year. Our Michigan District has a Governor who is also elected each year.
