Y'all Come to the Society's Ice Cream Social!

Since the fair week can't be this year, come for an evening of yard games at the History Center lawn and patio, plus a free ice cream treat. This August 20 event coordinates with the current Exhibit Hall display "County Schools: The Beating Heart of the Rural Community." Ice Cream socials were commonly held to celebrate the closing semester or quarter of the school year or when school let out. Donations will be accepted to go toward the Society's educational programming for youth and adults.
