The line of people waiting for barbecued chicken and home made ice cream at the Racine Fire Station gave Sarah Grace (D), candidate for the Ohio Legislature, and her father-in-law the Rev. Roger Grace (pictured with umbrellas open) an opportunity to meet with Racine residents. For the Rev. Grace, it was also an opportunity to visit with friends and former members of his congregation from the Racine United Methodist Church, where he served for many years.
