"Making the Turn"

If you missed the 33rd Annual Central Ontario District Convention August 18th to 20th. 2017, you missed an incredible event! Thank you Governor Mac and your convention team for an awesome convention - fellowship, training and so much fun!

For more information about this Convention - one that really set the bar high for future conventions, visit our CENON Facebook page @CentralOntarioDistrictOptimistInternational or just search for Central Ontario District. There are photos and lots of videos of so many of the activites of the weekend.

Congratulations to Susan and Jim Lynge of the Etobicoke Optimist Club who won the Early Bird Registration Draw at our recent CENON District Convention! By registering before the deadline, they were able to win their registration for our fabulous District Convention free. 

Thank you Governor Mac Rumble for an amazing year and convention. We are currently the 4th highest District in all of Optimist International. We have time to get back to the top. You have inspired us all with your passion for Optimism and compassion for the children and youth we serve.

Next year our District Convention will be in Cornwall, Ontario. Stay tuned to this webpage as more information becomes available from the planning committee for the 34th Annual Central Ontario District Convention. Hope to see everyone there!
