Ice cream social to help local organizations
Community service, giving back and neighbor helping neighbor is what you will see in the Clarksville community.
It happens easily and often here.
An excellent example of this on Sunday, Aug. 25 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Apple Shed in Clarksville, when United Fund of Calumet hosts its annual ice cream social. Immediately you will see the former Clarksville resident Debra Peppers, who will serve as emcee again this year.
You will also see Jerry Epperson, who will coordinate the music and performers, who will share their musical talents with the audience.
What is better than listening to the music and songs of homegrown talent and enjoying your favorite cake or pie accompanied by a scoop or two of freshly made ice cream?
Events at this venue are possible because of volunteers from the Raintree Arts council maintain the Apple Shed.
However, these are not the only volunteers who give back to make this annual event a success. From the talented people who share their culinary talents to the servers and clean up crew, many hands are needed each year.
This year Cathy Mitchell, Sherry Epperson, Mary Lovell, Susan Beauchamp, Mary Dockery, Annette Conrad, Todd Seward, Ramsey, Janie Busch, Frank Mackey, Tom Meyer and Hettie Hall will make ice cream in nine different flavors: vanilla, cookie dough, peach, cookies and cream, chocolate, non-fat yogurt, blackberry, strawberry and caramel.
Cakes, pies and desserts will be provided by Jane Schaffer, Kathy Gregory, Kathy Mitchell, Holly Mabry, Mary Dockery, Shirley Underwood, Linda Frank, Susan Lagemann, Helen Mirick, Kim Hunter, Chef Linda, Gail Miller, Diane Redd, Shirley Simpson, Debbie Woodall.
Volunteers from the Eolia Athletic Association and Clarksville Athletic Association will help set up for the event as well as take on clean-up duty.
United Fund volunteers give back each year on the last Sunday in August to make the annual ice cream social a success.
Proceeds will be used to help community organizations supported by the United Fund of Calumet.
