The Optimist Club of Avon was founded in 1959 by a group of volunteers who wanted to have a community sports program for the children of Avon. The A.J.A.A. grew from this project. Today the Club continues to support sports in Avon along with our educational programs and financial assistance to several community groups.
You may have been to our big fund-raiser, the Fish Fry, held for many years at the Township Park and recently moved to US 36 in front of Wal-Mart. We - and the kids of Avon - really appreciate your patronage, and look forward to seeing you again!
The Avon Optimist Club is proud to celebrate our tradition of service and looking ahead to the future. New projects become time-honored customs, and more new things are created as needs arise. If this sounds like fun to you, we hope you will join us! Yearly dues are paid by all members, Life Members enjoy a discount. Please contact the Club at for more information.
