We All Scream for Ice Cream!
On June 21st, MCCC hosted an Ice Cream Social for our Social Outreach group. Twenty-four clients and fourteen volunteers attended the social, a record high number for us. The afternoon began with a wordsearch and a quiz over ice cream trivia, for which three prizes were awarded. Ms. Jean won a $10 Baskin Robbins gift certificate for her answers on the trivia quiz and the drawing for a picture frame, a new tradition at our monthly socials. Volunteers helped serve ice cream sundaes and orange sherbet along with homemade brownies and cookies. Our young-at-heart seniors also participated in an ice cream themed ad-lib story, in which they filled in the blanks with funny adjectives, nouns, and verbs. The resulting story was worthy of a Pulitzer Prize, if we may say so.
We are grateful to all of our volunteers who made this event possible and to Baskin Robbins on Rufe Snow for donating the gift certificate. We can’t wait until our “Picnic on the Beach” next month!
