Ravenna – The Woodlands at Robinson recently held a free community carnival on July 26th. The carnival was sponsored by Clear Path Home Health, Crossroads Hospice, Dean’s Funeral Home, Dr. David Uhall, J & J Mobile Music, NEAS Ambulance Inc. and Saber Healthcare.

Highlights of the event included a visit from Slider, The Cleveland Indians Mascot who arrived via fire truck accompanied by the Ravenna City and Ravenna Twp. Fire Departments. The event was also attended by the Hiram Police Dept. and the Ohio State Patrol. Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate to allow for the Life flight visit and outdoor movie that were planned.

Children enjoyed the other activities; face-painting, bouncy house, inflatable slide, and carnival games, and the predator safety demonstration. The DJ was also a big hit, allowing Slider to lead some line dances for the crowd.

The first annual event turned out to be a great success and planning has begun for the 2nd annual event next summer.
