Governor's Message?

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

Be an Optimist!

Read Midwestern Ontario District of Optimist International, Governor's message.


Any current member who brings in a new member from July 4th to September 30th will get a ballot for a draw for gas cards - $150, $100, $50.

There is still lots of time to add new members before the end of this Optimist year! Do your best and expect the best outcome! My goal for our District is to get back to the number of members there were when we started the year!

Do register for the MWO District Convention as soon as possible – it really helps us with planning for food and spaces. Staying overnight? Book your room now, too!

I am looking forward to seeing many of you at our first in person meeting in over 2 years!

Governor Gail

P.S. If you or your club received a trophy in 2019, please be sure to bring them with you or return them prior to our September 17 & 18 Convention. Thank you.
