Optimists Alumni and other corps (until 2015)This category shows images of the Optimists Alumni and other corps with whom they have performed. They include shots from the 1983 and 1998 reunions but, primarily, cover the period from about 2002, when the Optimists Alumni was just forming, up until 2015 when the Optimists Alumni changed from an Old-School Drum and Bugle Corps to a band focussed on entertaining people. Photos from 2016 until today can be found in the "Optimists Alumni Party Gras Band" category
Before 2003These images were taken after the competitive years and before the Alumni Corps was formed.

Optimists Alumni Party Gras Band (2016 - present)The majority of those who joined the Alumni Corps had performed with the Optimists in the 1950s and 60s. Over time the effects of aging took their toll. By 2016 the Optimists Alumni no longer had enough members to perform a traditional Drum and Bugle Corps field show. Since our remaining members still wanted to perform we transformed ourselves into a "Fun Band". This new incarnation has a Party Gras feel with a focus on entertaining our audiences. This category contains images for the "Party Gras" years.
