After the stultifying heat and strong thunderstorms of the previous few days, Sunday’s crisp weather – high clouds and bright sun – was perfect for the annual end-of-summer CommUNITY picnic.

Members of the Kiwanis Club of Evanston grilled hundreds of hot dogs, and Evanston High School students put the sandwiches together and served the rest of the
picnic food.

The afternoon offered a smattering of Evanston itself: musical entertainment from local artists, voter registration, sports, education information, and the ever-popular opportunity to climb behind the wheel of a fire truck.
