  Welland Optimist Club Members

Our members are dedicated to "Bringing Out the Best in Kids" and to do our part by supporting community activities and service projects which provide a positive role model to children and youth throughout the Welland and Pelham area. When a need arises in our community the Welland Optimist Club is ready to offer help.

Our club members are Optimists and we strive to live up to the name, and maintain an upbeat attitude, which we try to pass along to the children we serve. The words of The Optimist Creed are well known to our Optimists and it gives each member a focus for personal improvement as we work to better the world around us.

Our volunteers provided a free Family Day skate in Welland on February 21st, 2022

Thank you to everyone who was able to make it out to this very well attended event. We talked to hundreds of families who were not only pleased with the free hotdog / fries and drink we provided but what amazing work we do in our community. A visit from Sgt Carter and Councillor Chiocchio acknowledged our efforts.

The 2021 Toy & Food Drive Were a HUGE Success!

A big thank you to all who generously donated a toy at the Seaway Mall.

The Welland Optimist Club transported nearly 15 minivan and truck loads of toys from the Seaway Mall to the Welland Community Christmas Toy store on West Main Street Welland.

An extra thank you to Dana and the staff at the Seaway mall for their help in loading the toys!
