The Jefferson County Historical Society is hosting its annual Ice Cream Social on Saturday, August 12 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Historical Village. The Village is located at 1411 N. 27th Street in Mt. Vernon. Once again, this event will be drive-thru style. Guests may also choose to eat on the grounds of the Village or inside the air-conditioned museum.
For a donation of $5.00, guests will receive ice cream with a choice of topping, a large cookie or piece of cake and bottled water.
“It is always a fun summer event, and it is a great value at only $5.00. It is fun for the kids, and we get to see families that we know and new faces. It’s a time where spirits are lifted. We truly appreciate the support from our members, sponsors, and community to make this event the success it has been,” said Candy Luzar, JCHS President.
The Jefferson County Historical Society was founded in 1946 to preserve the heritage of the county for future generations. It is a nonprofit organization that relies on grants, donations, membership dues, and fundraisers to operate. Their programs and village tours are free of charge and open to the public.
