EST. SINCE OCT 1969
Purposes of an Optimist Club
- To develop Optimism as a philosophy of life utilizing the tenets of the Optimist Creed;
- To promote an active interest in good government and civic affairs; to inspire respect for law;
- To promote patriotism and work for international accord and friendship among all people;
- To aid and encourage the development of youth in the belief that the giving of one’s self in service to others will advance the well-being of humankind, community life and the world.
The Thorndale Optimist Club provides funding for projects you physically see, like the Thorndale Library Fund, skate board park, children’s playgrounds, splash pad, many local school programs, bike safety rodeo, summer and winter sports and more. We just recently sponsored the launch of a new Junior Optimist Club of Thorndale.
The Optimist club also provides anonymously to those youth that may be impacted by childhood cancer or other illnesses/ challenges as well as youth who just need a helping hand.
The Optimist Club of Thorndale meet at the Community Centre every second Tuesday in the evening for a dinner meeting. Business meetings are the fourth Tuesday of every month.
We are always looking for new members - Come out and see if Optimism may be for you.
