Ron Roberts is a retired engineer whose lifelong hobbies have been related to various types of artwork, mostly self-taught. One of his hobbies has been wood carving. A few years ago he spotted some elaborately carved pumpkins online and was inspired to try it himself. Pumpkin carving for Ron is now an annual activity that has permitted him to demonstrate pumpkin carving throughout Ohio.

Each month Salem Parks and Recreation Department and Salem Public Library host two educational and fun programs for the public to enjoy. Every “Go Wild in the Park” program is open to the public and free of cost to attend!
