The Progressive Optimist Club of Barbados, a registered non-profit Service Club est. in May 2010, would love you to join us on our Independence Treasure Hunt. It’s a great way to interact with locals and learn about Barbadian culture past and present, visit various areas of interest around the Island and to sample local cuisine.
We are part of the Optimist International movement whose mandate is "Bringing Out the Best in Youth, Communities & Ourselves."
Our Treasure Hunt (TH) is a fundraising event to help us defray the cost of our many charitable & sociable programs (list on the attached page). Our programs were developed to provide basic food, clothing & educational items to children in need, provide stimulating educational events, workshops & challenges, and build confident, positive young adult members of society.
The TH will encompass the south western part of Barbados, and is designed with an independence & tourism theme. This means that participants will be encouraged (with bonus points & special gifts) to include tourists in their vehicle and to collect and or wear items that symbolise Barbadiana & Tourism.
