Summer's coming - are your kids ready to spend more time at home, or maybe make some pocket money by babysitting? We had so many kids out for our Babysitter and ‘Home Alone’ courses!

We're 'friends of youth'!
We're here for youth! Our club is proud to support the students at Bosanquet Central School with financial assistance for two very important and exciting opportunities. The Grade Eight class will be camping at Muskoka Woods for their graduation trip. The Grade 2/3 class completed a project where they created their own donuts! They wrote about them, advertised them and then created them using paper mache. Their creativity needed to be showcased further, so they are now on display at the library in Thedford - be sure to check them out. They have also been invited to visit Global Donuts in Sarnia to show off their donut designs! To help with this trip our club is covering the cost of the bus. Optimists are happy and proud to help these students out with their great endeavours - have fun kids!
