Meadowbrook of Clayton will be the center of activities July 23 for a joint celebration of the 200th year of Salem-Clayton and Union along with the 175th anniversary of Englewood.
“It’s a banner year for the Northmont area,” the city of Union website said in describing the celebration
“The Randolph Twp. Historical Society initiated the idea of the three communities coming together. From that we put a planning committee together of the historical society and the three communities,” said Jennifer Barclay of the city of Clayton.
Their task, she said, “to put together an event the community would enjoy.”
The venue will be the City of Clayton’s Meadowbrook on Salem Avenue.
An opening ceremony featuring the mayors of the three communities will be held at 11 a.m.
Activities will include an exhibit by the Randolph Twp. Historical Society, other displays on the area’s history and displays by local businesses. The historical society also will offer a trivia game with prizes, Barclay said.
There’s also a golf scramble, corn hole tournament, bands, kids’ games and food and drink. Food will include grilled hot dogs and hamburgers along with offerings of a couple of food trucks.
Among those providing music will be Troy’s Megan Osman and Rock It 88. Police and fire representatives from all communities are scheduled to also be on hand.
Barclay said the golf scramble would cover nine holes and get under way at 12:30 p.m. The fee is $55 per team with cart and prizes.
The Happy Corner Church is putting together “tons of kids activities,” Barclay said.
A silent auction will feature items donated by businesses. Proceeds will go to the historical society campaign to pay off its building.
Funding for the celebration was provided by the three communities contributing $1,000 each.
