We had a dunk tank, a pony ride, miniature golf, sand art, and an adult and child pie eating contest, and received donations of food. There were plenty of tables for people to eat at. Around 200 people showed up. It was a success.”

Antique cars were also on display through the help of Tommy Bug Auto Repair, as well as fire trucks.

It was great seeing and speaking with up-and-coming leaders Priscilla Consolo and Anthony Butta.”
