Later in the afternoon, the entertainment was Pa Dutch humorists Bill Meck and LeRoy .
Other activities included bingo, a cake walk, and raffles. The Penn Mahoning Ambulance Association was also on hand to provide wellness screenings. A light supper with dessert was followed by the day's closing ceremonies.
