The annual CommUNITY Picnic, held Aug. 25 in Ingraham Park just behind the Morton Civic Center, is one of the harbingers of summer’s end. Evanston Township High School began just days before, and District 65 schools opened the next day.  

Hundreds of residents of all ages came to enjoy music, food and games and to get information from booths set up by local organizations.

Everyone seemed to have a good time, even the big green spider.
