This week's activity will be our annual Ice Cream Social and Fundraiser. Ice cream and baked goods will be served beginning at 6:30 p.m, a good-will offering will be accepted at this event.
For the evening's entertainment, Alice Thomas of Abilene will begin singing at 7:15 p.m. Alice loves music and will play many of your old time favorites. It should be a very enjoyable evening, so bring you family and friends and be a part of an old time tradition.
This year, we will also host an auction of several food items from some special cooks beginning at 7:00p.m. These items will include pie, cake, homemade bread, and other baked goods. This is a great opportunity to get some very fine desserts and help support the Dickinson County Historical Society.
Just a reminder, the society members whose names begin with L-Z are asked to bring baked goods for this event. These can be left at the Heritage Center beginning Friday or brought to the Ice Cream Social on Saturday.
Concerned about the heat? Don't worry, since the Ice Cream Social will be held inside the Heritage Center Museum where it is cool.
Also don’t forget to come early and see the premiere of C.L. Brown and Kansas Independent Telephony. This short film will be shown at the Eisenhower Presidential Library auditorium at 6:00 p.m. After the film, everyone will be invited to walk across the street to the Heritage Center for ice cream and to view the Museum of Independent Telephony.
