Residents and visitors enjoyed Community Day Aug. 11 at Richfield Woods Park, where they enjoyed contests, entertainment and food. Pie contest judges Martha Matlock and Nagwa Ahlborg are shown at right bottom as they sample entries in the annual competition.

Pictured above left are children who served as a rapt audience for Dr. Insecta and his presentation on bugs.

Carnival games also attracted participants like Dan McCallister, who is shown at right top as he successfully rings a bell after swinging a sledgehammer. Attendees also enjoyed music and fireworks.

In addition, the weekend included the annual parade Aug. 9 and a safety forces open house and Steak Fry scholarship fundraiser Aug. 10.
