Kid's Safety Village of Durham Region

The Optimist Club of Ajax along with members of the Rotary Club Oshawa Parkwood founded the Kid's Safety Village of Durham Region back in 1995 and we are both very active with the village.

Since 1995 the Kids Safety Village of Durham Region has been teaching important skills to our youth. Fast forward nearly 20 years and 15,000 people visiting per year and it's time to refurbish the site and build a second classroom. We need your help!

Hello Mr. Pettitt,

My name is Natalie Stilo from Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School. Unfortunately I was unable to attend the recent award ceremony and evening, but I was very happy to be informed that I was the lucky recipient of the bursary and related awards.

I would like to thank you for the generous gift and bursary. I appreciate the fact that the Optimist Club of Ajax provides these rewards for students who are active in the community. I will be able to put this gift to good use as I am attending Queen's University in the fall.

Thanks again for your generosity and support.

Best regards,
Natalie Stilo

For many years the Optimist Club of Ajax has been proud to sponsor the young men and woman in our high schools, who have not only an exemplary academic record, but have also been willing to help others through volunteering and service within our community. Here are this year’s recipients:

Mother nature took a break from it’s snowstorms and bone chilling temperatures to allow Winterfest to shine. Winterfest, which has been running in Ajax for more than 15 years in a variety of formats, always draws hordes of people despite most of the activities being held outside in icy temperatures.

There was no shortage of things to do and see at this years event. Activities this year included ice sculpting demonstrations, dog sled rides, wagon rides, outdoor skating, a figure skating show, inflatable rides, arts and crafts and of course the Ajax Optimists were there with our snowshoes.

Enjoying some winter fun in Ajax ...
