Club History


The Optimist Club of East Hamilton was chartered as one of 2,500 clubs in 1971. Our club motto is "Friend of Youth". In 2016, we are celebrating 45 years as an Optimist Club. Here is a pin from our 40th Anniversary.



In October 2015, we helped form a new Scouts group in East Hamilton.
This photo is the charter signing with 2015 Optimist President Jim Wilkins and 58th Scout Troop Leader
Doug French. In the background is then Optimist Vice-President Lori Stremble, who is now the President of the East Hamilton Optimist Club.

Over the years, our Club has hosted many events for our community and our Optimist Zone and District. Recently we hosted an Optimist Zone 2 Breakfast Meeting. Stay tuned to our News Column on the Home Page or at this link to learn more about exciting upcoming events.
