ICE CREAM SOCIAL FOR KIDS: We invited some kids over on this past Tuesday to shake and make some ice cream in a bag and eat some homemade ice cream too! The Bent County Art Guild provided toppings and we had a lot of fun in Bell Park. Last week we enjoyed our outing to the Trostel Exhibit at the Pioneers Museum in Colorado Springs – 16 people attended. Thanks to our gracious hosts, the Galbraiths! COMING UP SOON: Aug. 27, 2–4 p.m. - Old fashioned ice cream social at Bell Park; and Sept. 17 – Old fashioned ice cream social at Boggsville. We are working on a new sugar beet exhibit, so if you have items of interest, please let us know.
