Meetings & Events


At our monthly Dinner Meeting on the 2nd Monday of the month we host speakers from the local area and beyond to share information about organizations, happenings, events and interesting topics.  Guests are welcome at these meetings. Each month we also hold a Business Meeting for members, where we plan projects and activities, and make decisions on donations.

We host many different events each year including a Shrimpfest Gala, the best Christmas Tree Lot in Oakville, and we volunteer at many events supporting children and youth in Oakville.

Newcomers and visitors are welcome to join us at our dinner meetings. We'd love to have you! Please fill in and submit our Join Us form.

Optimist Club at the Halton Police Children’s Safety Village
1151 Bronte Road, Oakville, ON L6M 4G3

Our meetings and Events list includes events which the Optimists are invited to attend, many of them from organizations we support or sponsor. For sports team events, please see the Project Game On page which provides details on teams and schedules.
