The rain didn't dampen spirits as over 80 community members enjoyed a grilling demonstration, food, crafts, and fun at a Father's Day Cookout at the West Chicago Public Library District today. Chef David Esau was on hand to grill up such tasty treats as grilled tomato salsa, grilled eggplant with rosemary and olive oil, and grilled pineapple with vanilla custard and lavender. Samples and recipes were liberally distributed.

In the meantime, kids had the opportunity to make special Father's Day cards as well as kites. "Awesome -- like the card idea," said library patron Brandon Moore. "This is a great bonding time," added patron Aldo Lemus. A free drawing was held to give away two Cuisinart grill tool sets as well as two certificates good for one free hour of batting cage time donated by the Bulls/Sox Training Academy in Lisle.

The Library provided a fried chicken lunch for all participants. "I had planned to come sign up for the (summer) reading program and stayed for the picnic," said library patron Vonashey Owens. "The staff was very nice."
