The Kid’s Day Celebration took place at Veterans Memorial Park on Walnut Street and included food, games and entertainment for kids of all ages. Kevin M. Tierney, Sr., President and Chief Operating Officer of North Shore Bank said, “As the city’s hometown community bank, we have been supporting this event for many years, and we are very proud to continue that support. It’s a great day for the community and a lot of fun for the kids.”
