CLEGHORN - The fifth annual Cleghorn Ice Cream Day on June 12 is sure to be an evening of fun, food, and festivites.

Activities will begin at the Cleghorn park at 4 p.m. with games for kids, Jumping Castle, ring toss, bingo, train rides for kids, a cake walk at 5 p.m. and quack crap bingo at 5, 6 and 7 p.m. An auction with many quality items will begin at 7 p.m., and from 9 p.m. to midnight, "Daylight Again" will be playing 60s, 70s and 80s music for dancing and listening pleasure.

The Cleghorn Fire Department will serve a supper featuring Philly sandwiches, chips, baked beans, salad and beverage for $6 from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. They will also operate the beer garden.

The American Legion Auxiliary women will serve pie in the Community Center, and free ice cream will be served in the community center from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Proceeds from this year's ice cream event are ear-marked for park playground equpiment to replace or enhance the current equipment.

"The park is a popular place for the children, young and old, of Cleghorn," said Bernice McIntosh, secretary of the Cleghorn Community Center Board.

There will be several raffles at the event. Raffle tickets are now available for a quilt, two half-hogs with free processing by Paullina Locker, and three cash prices, one for $100 and two for $50. Tickets are $2 each or three for $5.

There is also a raffle drawing for kids: one boys' basket and one girls' basket. Those tickets are $1 each or three for $2.

Sign-up sheets are posted in the Cleghorn Post Office to volunteer to help or donate a cake or pie.

Proceeds from last year's social went toward a cement patio and two picnic tables with attached seating and other benches added to the northeast corner of the Cleghorn Community Center.

"We are grateful for the succesful fundraisers and generous donations of those attending the event," said McIntosh.

Anyone interested in purchasing a brick for the Wall of Pride is asked to do so by June 12. A few orders for engraved bricks have been made, and we would like to add to that number to make the engraving price more reasonable.

The ice cream social is sponsored by the Cleghorn Community Center Board and involves many community volunteers and organizations. Board members include Todd Wetherell and Jeff Frederick, co-presidents; Bernice McIntosh, secretary; Sue Briese, treasurer; Fran Briggs, Les Pedersen, Greta Petersen, Tim Petersen and Marlin Versteeg.
