33rd Annual Ice Cream Social
Monday, July 4, 2016 at the Silver City Museum
The Silver City Museum needs volunteers on the 4th of July to help with the 33rd Annual Ice Cream Social on Monday, July 4. The museum has activities for children, a cake walk, music, sodas, water, popcorn, and, of course, ice cream.

Ice cream dippers, float makers, soda and water sellers, popcorn makers and sellers, cakewalk helpers, and games helpers are needed to create this old-fashioned celebration. Volunteers help decorate the courtyard, set up on the morning of the 4th and take down when the festivities are over.

The museum would appreciate the participation of those of you who would like to help and those of you who would like to come on out after the parade to have fun, listen to music, and eat ice cream.
