Ice Cream Shop

Hits Its Stride

To the Editor:

Please let me use this means to say thank you to the community for their continuing support of our ice cream shop and to Kaaren Valenta for a great story.

Our “Suggestions and Requests” box was well used. We are now working at near full capacity with about two dozen homemade ice cream flavors, several new Moo-Mixer combinations and milkshake flavors — many as a result of those requests — available on any given day.

Our Grand Opening was lots of fun. The winner of the “Name a Flavor” contest was Arno Sokk of Newtown. “Cow Tracks” is the name he suggested for my concoction of peanut butter based with caramel and chocolate chips. There were two winners of the “Name a Calf” contest: Jason Jager, Sandy Hook, choose “Fortune” and Stan Slupecki, from Union, who choose “Cookies and Cream.” We combined their ideas to name the calf “Fortune Cookie.” The winner of the raffle for a gift basket was Margaret Cassidy.

Our next “Name the Flavor” and “Name the Calf” contests will be Saturday, August 14, 3 to 5 pm. Successful contestants win a free T-shirt.

We’ve gotten several inquiries and compliments regarding our farm sign and the labels for our store products. They were produced by A Sign Depot on Route 25; the folks there did a great job and are wonderful to work with.

Our Lost & Found section now includes several items, including a very nice baby stroller left behind on June 23, a prayer study book, and various other items.

Again, thank you for the excellent coverage.
