A Totally Local Ice Cream Social ROCKED in 2014!
Here are some ||| FUN FACTS ||| about the 2nd Annual Totally Local Ice Cream Social 2014!
- We doubled last years attendance! (which means more people getting to know their local business owners, more exposure for Local Businesses in the community, and MORE FUN for the community!)
- We collected TONS of school supplies for Rock House Kids, for children who do not have the opportunity to buy school supplies as much as others.
Below is a list of the school supplies collected at A Totally Local Ice Cream Social from our community members… WOW! Huge thanks to our giving community and to the local business owners who participated in this! The Rock House Kids organization sends their thanks as well.
