Please bring Cakes to the Museum during museum hours - Tuesday-Friday 9 am-4:30 pm, and Saturday-Sunday 10 am -4 pm up until the morning of July 4th. The Museum is also seeking volunteers to help with the event! If you are able to donate a few hours of your time to help with a variety of activities including ice cream serving, event setup and takedown, family fun activities, and more, it would be greatly appreciated.

Please call Jan White at 538-5921 if you have questions, or to let her know you will donate a cake, and to hear about the opportunities and rewards of volunteering for the Ice Cream Social. [ Press Release ]
