The cooler, less humid day gave a break to grillers, left to right, Paul Schmidt, Stamata Blanas, Sarah Flax and James Wolinski. Other Kiwanis cooks were Kevin Kelly and Dr. Scott Hopf.

Entertainment, games for children, ice cream and popcorn, safety demonstrations and information about City and social services were also on tap at the picnic.
