Merrimack’s Reeds Ferry Elementary School hosted its 38th annual Fun Day on June 12, with a schoolwide celebration that included indoor games, craft sessions and face painting, along with outdoor delights provided by the Merrimack Fire and Rescue Department, whose personnel provided cascades of fire-hosed water for two water slides, one of which is enjoyed here by Shea Egan, foreground, and Paige Mason, both fourth-grade students.

A high level of agility is displayed by Felix Rattunde, a Reeds Ferry fourth-grader, seen here answering the challenge of a relay game, which entailed his recovery of as many golf balls as possible from the bottom of this water-filled can and a run with his cache to teammates at the far end of the grassy field.

Some of the volunteers hosting the event, included, from left, Merrimack Fire and Rescue Department Fire Marshall John Manuele; Robert “Mr. G” Gidari, Reeds Ferry Physical Education teacher and Rachel Schneider, assistant principal of Reed’s Ferry.
