On Saturday June 12th 2004, the Mid-Scarborough Recreation Centre held a "Fair" to show the folks who live in Scarborough a little of what the Mid-Scarborough Centre offers. Besides the two large rinks there are various organizations that have activities centered around the Mid-Scarborough Complex.
There is the active Scarborough Rifle Club, a Snooker Club, a Euchre, Cribbage, Bridge group, special Karate for the hard of hearing, various dance activites, then of course a large Sea Cadet group, an Air Cadet group, and a very active Seniors group.
The Scarborough Amateur Radio Club is also one of these many user-groups.

The idea was to show the public what our radio club is all about. Continue reading Scarborough Fair 2004
