Members of two Junior Optimist International (JOI) Clubs sponsored by the Del Mar – Solana Beach Optimist Club got into action during “Celebrate Community 2021”, a week-long effort sponsored by the major youth service organizations during Oct. 10-16. The Canyon Crest Academy JOI Club and Pacific Trails Middle School JOI Club members gathered at the Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve to beautify canyon trails by picking up trash and removing invasive species of plants from alongside the trails.
Under the supervision of Park Ranger Sarah, the JOI Club members had a great time and accomplished meaningful community service. Joint community service projects are scheduled throughout the week.
