Today we will be celebrating National Ice Cream Day by gathering from Noon-2 at Dublin Park (on the corner of Roundtop Drive/Tuckerman Drive) under the pavilion to enjoy each other’s company, play some games, and, of course, eat ice cream! Dublin Park includes a playground, large fields, a basketball and volley ball area, and a path for walking.  Calvary will also provide bubbles, chalk, some fun outdoor games…and the ICE CREAM!! Plan to bring your lunch, a chair, water, and sunscreen (although we all were able to fit under the pavilion last year.
