About Us

We begin a new year of Optimism this September 2022 with Kevin MacBean at the helm as our president. And we are finally able to hold our much anticipated celebration for our 50th Anniversary, slightly delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic that struck the world in 2019. Stay tuned for photos of our members enjoying this festive event taking place at the Best Western in September. 50th Anniversary page

We are the Optimist Club of Orangeville part of  CENON (Central Ontario District Optimists), we have about 30 current members and welcome new members wholeheartedly! While it's been a very challenging year and a half, the Covid-19 virus is beginning to get under control as more people are vaccinated. We look forward to a brighter, more social future. Meetings in person have begun with masks and social distancing in place. Our meetings take place every other Wednesday and are catered with a scrumptious dinner.
