We hope everyone enjoyed the nice long weekend and Family Day! Together with the Municipality of Lambton Shores, our Optimist club was thrilled to present a whole day of family fun on the holiday Monday - beginning with free public skating at the Legacy Center rink in Thedford in the morning and followed by a free lunch and fun activities at the Optimist Community Centre in Port Franks in the afternoon. As part of our Fire, Water and Ice Safety program Lambton Shores Emergency Services had firefighters on site at the Legacy providing educational materials along with a good visual display with water and ice rescue equipment to see. They also had 3 buckets of ice water for people to put their hands in and see the decrease in dexterity once their hands had been introduced to ice / cold water with a lock and key. In the afternoon, we had 30 or so people come by for food, crafts, games and a movie. All the guests were new to our club and its services.
