Annual Ole’ Fashion Homemade Ice Cream Social

Aug 8, 2014 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm CDT

Panhandle Pioneer Settlement 17869 NW Pioneer Settlement Rd Blountstown, FL 32424
The Panhandle Pioneer Settlement is having their Annual Ole’ Fashion Homemade Ice Cream Social on Friday, August 8. The social will be from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm CDT. We have changed our day for this luscious event so as not to interfere with the beginning of our local high school football season. We’ll have some of the best homemade ice cream this side of the Apalachicola River. There’ll be games for the little ones, live entertainment from Easy Company, and much more. Admission is free. What a lovely end to the summer and a little treat for going back to school. But then again who needs a reason for enjoying homemade ice cream, it’s as American as Apple Pie. For more information give us a call at (850) 674-2777 or email us at

Animal Adventures

Landmark Park
(DOTHAN--) Landmark Park will present the next “Animal Adventures” on Friday June 27 at 10 a.m. These special, one-hour educational programs provide unique opportunities to learn about our natural world. Children ages 5 and older are encouraged to come with their youth groups and families to see the wonder of native and exotic animals.

Homing pigeons are incredible birds that have an innate homing ability which allows them to return from incredible distances to their nesting area. These birds have been used throughout history in several ways including army messengers and to deliver medical information. Join John Ross Helms, member of the Wiregrass Racing Pigeon Club as he shares his 30 years worth of experience raising and racing these spectacular birds. Mr. Helms will have several birds available for guests to see up close and then he will release the birds to return to their home.

Programs begin at 10 a.m. in the Interpretive Center at Landmark Park. A noon program may be available if the morning session fills. Admission is free with paid admission to the park ($4 for adults, $3 for children 3-12, free for members and children 2 and under). Reservations are required, plus a 50 percent deposit for groups of 15 or more.

Landmark Park, home of the Alabama Agricultural Museum, is a 135-acre historical and natural science park located on U.S. Highway 431 North in Dothan, Ala. For more information and to register for a program, contact the park at 334-794-3452.
