MEDINA – More than 40 members of the Senior Center of Western Orleans attended their annual picnic Monday at Junior Wilson’s Sportsmen’s Club.

The event featured a potluck dinner, hot dogs cooked by board president Lynn Creasey and entertainment by magician Stephen Ingraham of Greece.

Ingraham has been doing magic for 46 years and was named Magician of the Year twice – once in Seattle and another year in Rochester. In Seattle in 1977 he was up against Siegfried and Roy and Lance Burton. He has appeared at the New York State Fair 30 years in a row.

The afternoon ended with raffle drawings and several games of cards.

The picnic is sponsored by the Senior Center as a way to say thank you to the members for their support throughout the year.

The Senior Center is located at 615 West Ave. and is open during August from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday and from noon to 4 p.m. Fridays for euchre. Any senior is invited to join.
