About Us

The Optimist Club of Alvinston Districts started in 1978. We are now a group of approximately 60 men and women dedicated to helping the youth of our community become the best they can be!

We meet every first and third Mondays of the month from September to June @ 7:00pm in the upstairs hall of the Brooke-Alvinston Community Centre Complex.

Come join us to find out what we are up to next in supporting the youth of Brooke-Alvinston!


A word from our President

As we move through this challenging time we hope you and your family are in good health. We are happy to inform you that our club is back with regular meetings every first and third Mondays of each month to support the youth in our community. New members are always welcome at 7:00 pm in the BAICCC upper hall. Please call me at 519-312-7363 if you would like a ride to check out our club’s meeting.

Optimist Creed

Promise Yourself…

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
