It was another successful Sunday in the Park event hosted by the Escalon Chamber of Commerce on Sunday, Aug. 4 in the city’s Main Street Park. Bright sunny skies and a light August breeze greeted attendees, who had the opportunity to take part in a number of activities. There was a bead bracelet-making craft, the chance to create ‘ranger’ cookies with peanut butter, saltine crackers and coffee creamer packets, the chance to take home a jar of cookie dough mix, a display by the Escalon Historical Society, a chance to visit with adoptable pets from the Escalon Animal Shelter and more.
New Miss Escalon Mya Beary and members of her court were also on hand for their first official community event, helping youngsters with the crafts. A Frisbee golf course was set up for those that wanted to try it out and there was also music, face painting, and a Chamber ribbon cutting for the new GEM Cookie Company.
