Medina Celebration Day turned into a tribute to autumn, Saturday, Sept. 21, at Hamel Legion Park. An area greenhouse sold mums in full bloom, farmers sold honey and maple syrup, and Boy Scouts toasted marshmallows for s’mores. Outdoor bingo attracted a crowd, as did a fireworks spectacular and a visit from the North Memorial helicopter ambulance.
