Local vendors their offerings. A free swim and pick up baseball game was also enjoyed. Clarington Fire Services, Durham Region Police and Ambulance were present for a close up look inside vehicles and safety education. Soper Creek Wildlife Rescue along with furry friends shared what they do. Lions Dog Guides along with their handlers were busy socializing. The Newcastle Lions Club cooked over 300 hamburgers and hotdogs. Popcorn, freezies and of course birthday cake was enjoyed by everyone.
