Preservation Month

Kids and Moms Come for Ice CreamIce Cream Social
In celebration of National Preservation Month, each May the Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) invites the community preservation network - organizations, leaders, and supporters - to an Ice Cream Social.
HPC Staff makes 40 quarts of homemade ice cream (this year strawberry, peach, chocolate, and vanilla), and the Commission dips up sweetness, serves lemonade, and meets and greets.
