People return each year for the all-you-can-eat summer treat. For newcomers, seeing ice cream served with a shiny scoop shaped like a garden trowel is always a shock but they learn quickly that no other tool can put out the giant servings that are offered to all the visitors. Volunteers do all the serving.

The rich vanilla ice cream can be topped with chocolate syrup or strawberries. It is served with a choice of cake and coffee or cold drink.

The event is held rain or shine with indoor and outdoor seating.

Ice cream is also available for purchase to take home.

Tickets are available in advance at the Leslie N. Firth Learning Center, next door to the park, or from directors of the Guernsey association. Adults tickets are $7; and children, 5-10 years old, are $4. Children under age 4 are free.

Classes

• Mercer County Cooperative Extension Office, Mercer, offers a Basics of Home Canning course from 1 to 3 p.m. July 15.

Have you thought about growing your own garden produce, or purchasing fruits or vegetables from a local farm this summer? What about finding a pick-your-own fruit and/or vegetable farm and then freezing or canning the fresh produce or fruit for later use in family meals? Would you like to know more about how to use a pressure canner?

Preregistration is required by calling 814-849-7361. Registration fee for the class is $20 per person.
