The Grantham Optimist Club Would Like To Thank The Following Sponsors For Their Help And Participation In Improving Our Club:
With the generous aid of the Performance Auto Group, the Grantham Optimist Club was able to upgrade our Softball League facility's benches and bleachers.
Moreover, we are also proud to announce Performance Auto Group's support of our Performance Auto Group A's Tournament Softball Team; A select softball team, comprised of players from the Grantham Optimist Softball Program from the ages of 14 and younger, that travel Ontario to participate in regional tournaments.
Performance Auto Group was also our co-sponsor of our 2018 Family Appreciation Softball Event, donating both their time and delicious hotdogs to feed our hungry players.
With the help of the Timbits Minor Sports Program, we were able to outfit our Grantham Optimist Softball League T-Ball teams with uniforms and hats.
"The Timbits Minor Sports Program is a community-oriented sponsorship program that provides opportunities for kids aged four to nine to play house league sports. The philosophy of the program is not based on winning or losing, but on learning a new sport, making new friends, and just being a kid. "
"Ontario Trillium Capitol Project Grant was successfully awarded to the Grantham Optimist Club for improvements to their four baseball fields. The grant has been used to replace all of the existing fencing, backstop, safety infrastructure, and general park equipment, improving the facility that has been providing softball and other youth activities since 1954.
The Grantham Optimist Club conducts numerous service projects serving hundreds of young people annually, such as, youth softball, scouting, beavers, and oratorical competitions for St. Catharines elementary schools and during the 63 years of operating, an excess of 60, 000 youth have participated in the Club's programs.
Understanding that there is a direct link between strong community programs and healthy communities the Grantham Optimist Club is proud to partner with the Ontario Trillium Foundation in continuing to fulfill these programs and achieve long term success."
