(DOTHAN) On June 9 from 5 p.m. - 8 p.m., Landmark Park will host the annual summertime family favorite, the Old Fashioned Ice Cream Social, in celebration of National Dairy Month.
Entertainment will include music in the Gazebo, butter churning, wagon rides and a cakewalk, plus old-fashioned games and a quilt exhibit. An exhibit of antique dairy implements—including butter churns, molds and ice cream separators—on loan from park member Billy Dekle, will be displayed in the park’s church. A Mobile Dairy Classroom will explain the modern milking process.
Park volunteers will be scooping FREE single dip cones of ice cream, including homemade vanilla, handmade on an old fashioned wooden churn. Or, visitors can purchase a special treat in the Martin Drugstore. The Shelley General Store, next door to the Martin Drugstore, will also be open, selling old country items.
Pack a picnic supper and enjoy a celebration in honor of National Dairy Month. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for children ages 4-15 and free for members and children 3 and under. The Ice Cream Social is sponsored by WOOF Radio and Bedsole Milk Co.
