Community SupportThe Optimist Club
Helen MacCormack joined the Optimist Club of Halton Hills in September 2012 and became a Director at the same time. The Optimist Club is a “Friend of Youth”. All of our fundraising is done to support youth in our community.
As just a few of our many local initiatives we have donated to air cadets, local sports teams, funded public skates during March break, and held Breakfast with Santa for local families. We hold an annual essay contest and oratorical to give young people in Halton Hills the chance to use their writing and public speaking skills. Our mandate is to provide financial and other support to youth in our community.
Literacy North Halton
As avid lifelong readers, we understand the importance and enjoyment of the written word. Being able to work behind the scenes to support those who wish to further develop their literacy, numeracy and computer skills has been very rewarding.
Helen MacCormack spent 12 years on the Board of Directors, 11 of those years as Secretary Treasurer.
