We want to welcome our newest Optimist club to the District, the Penhold & District Optimist Club organized on June 23, 2010 in the city of Penhold, AB. The organization meeting was officiated by our newest OI Field Rep, Duane Kelly.
The Penhold & District Optimist Club, was formed to service the needs of the youth in Penhold and area as per the motto of Optimist International, ‘Friend of Youth’.
