“Family Fun Day” at Library

Each summer the Friends of the Greenville Public Library and the Greyson James Steyer Memorial Fund sponsor seven weeks of “Family Fun Day” Wednesdays at 11:00. Each program features a top-notch performer who is entertaining for all age groups. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy the show on the front lawn under the shade trees.

Kick off summer on June 6th with world-renowned magician Gordon Russ who combines fast-paced comedy with lots of audience participation. “This year I’ve assembled a crazy cast of characters who go on a hilarious Magical Tour full of funny situations.“ Traveling through Europe, Australia and China, Gordon has brought his unique brand of illusion to thousands of people across the globe.

In case of inclement weather the First Congregational Christian Church on 5th Street generously offers us their Activity Building. Be sure to stop in the Library June 1st to sign up for Summer Reading for kids, teens, and adults. It's easy and the prizes are amazing!

His national performances include Playland amusement park in Rye, New York, the Downers Grove Festival in Chicago, the Toledo Zoo as well as numerous other US venues. When working his magic, Gordon specializes in Schools, Libraries, Art Fairs, Festivals, and Corporate events; his special style of street magic never fails to draw a crowd.

While on his continuing travels around the Mid-West, Gordon has been seen at the Ann Arbor Art Fair, the East Lansing Art Fair, Grosse Pointe’s Art on the Pointe, and the Liberty Festival in Canton. He has entertained the fans at Joe Louis Arena for the Detroit Red Wings’ Skate with the Stars, and graced the stage at the Macomb Center for the Performing Arts. One of Gordon’s most memorable moments came when his magic was requested at a private performance for former world heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali.

Gordon’s introduction to the world of magic came early. He learned the art of illusion from his father, who made sure magic was an everyday part of growing up. Gordon currently resides in Michigan with his wife Cyndi and his two sons Gordon and Tanner.
