The Junior Optimist Club of Oakville was recognized by Junior Optimist International as a Distinguished Honour Club for 2016-17 because of their numerous projects and assistance in creating two additional new Junior Optimist Clubs. People often ask what does a JOI club do? This photo captures their impact in the community - from September to June, they volunteered 766 hours, impacting 1182 children, which is 38 children impacted per member of the JOI Club. Congratulations to every one of you for a successful and fun year. We took this photo of the group on Awards night, when they also receive their individual medallions for their accomplishments.
