Magician David Anthony performed amazing illusions and kids shared a hot dog lunch Wednesday afternoon at Findley State Park at an end-of-summer reading program picnic courtesy of the Herrick Memorial Library. A cornhole contest, a sack race, and a hula hoop contest were led by park ranger Roger Nikiforow with prizes for first, second, and third place finishers.
