Youth Activities

Optimist Lawn Aerating

Lawn aerating is importnant to the health of your lawn. It punches small holes in the lawn, pulling out soil plugs to help combat soil compaction. This allows your lawn to be strong and healthy.

Canvassing will start in early April, and lawn aerating will occur from April 30 - May 5. If you are able to help out with this fund rasiser for our club, we'd love to hear from you. Contact Rob Perry at 519-404-1447.

Funds raised at this event are placed directly back into programming within our community.
