Our 38th Annual Ice Cream Social is just four days away, and we are getting ready for another terrific afternoon of family fun! For nearly four decades we have been inviting the communities we serve (and any friends of Latah County) to join us on the McConnell Mansion lawn for free ice cream sundaes, which include a pineapple topping in honor of Mrs. McConnell and her affinity for the exotic treat. We will be serving up ice cream and watermelon from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m., this Sunday, July 28th.

Along with free ice cream, we invite guests to enjoy a variety of attractions and activities throughout the afternoon.

Included in the family fun will be children’s activities (doing laundry with washboards, hand wringers and clotheslines and pins…hands on history for the little ones), dress ups, crafts and games. Also there will be horse and wagon rides with Milt Moore from Potlatch, live music with Ardin Skoglund and Forgotten Freight, Hog Heaven Muzzle Loaders, weavers and spinners, lace makers, games and crafts on the lawn, cherry seed spit, water balloon toss, and much more! The Moscow Preservation Commission will present their 2013 Orchid Awards at 4:00 PM also.
|The dress-up trunks are a favorite stop for kids and parents alike!|
We hope you will join us for an afternoon of free, family fun. If you have any questions, please call (208.882.1004) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
