Those who have gone
This collection contains photo memories of Toronto Optimists, Seneca Optimists and Optimists Alumni members and staff who have passed away. If we have a few shots for a particular individual, there is an album with their name. If we only have a single shot, the photo is included in the "We Remember" album. There are separate web pages for each individual, accessible from the "In Memory" page under the "News" menu at the top. Each page contains a photo and a few words about that member.
