The Optimist Club of London - Oakridge Acres was chartered in 1957 and is one of ten Optimist Clubs in the city of London.  There are also two Junior Optimist clubs for youths up to 18 years of age.  Each club operates independently, but meet often to share information and partner in programs that benefit youth in London.  Our club has been a vital part of the Oakridge and London community, providing activities for youth and providing financial support for a wide variety of sport, education, health and safety programs.  We have a proven track record in our community and an active membership of over 50 members who have a common desire to improve the lives of youth in our community.  You can learn more about the programs and fundraisers by clicking on the tabs in this site.  Information on membership is also available.  Any other questions can be answered by contacting our president at president@oakridgeoptimists.ca
