Get your ticket buying, mouse-clicking fingers ready ladies because it's time once again for the Purity Miss Martha's Ice Cream Crankin and Summer Social! I missed this last year but my friends who attended said it was just a great time for adults and children alike.
The ice cream social will be at the First Presbyterian Church on Franklin Road on June 10th from 3 - 5pm. Tickets are $10 for adults (13 years and up), $8 for children (age 3 - 12) and free for the wee ones 2 years old and below.
Hey, you don't need teeth to eat ice cream!
Part of the ice cream social is a homemade ice cream contest where participants compete to have their flavor made by Purity ice cream. Last year's winning flavor was "Peanutbuttery" but people got to have tons of other flavors from classics like chocolate to ones with (not kidding) cicadas. I doubt we'll see the latter this year but it'll be fun to see what people come up with. All this for just $10!
Proceeds from Miss Martha's Ice Cream Crankin' benefit the Martha O'Bryan Center, a local non-profit that works really really hard with impoverished families in Nashville among many other wonderful things like giving children an opportunity to a good head-start in life, teaching parents to nurture, meals on wheels and a shuttle service from food deserts to grocery stores so families learn to eat better.
I started volunteering with them last year and it's been an eye-opening experience that really puts my own life in perspective. $10 means a couple of fancy coffees but it means a lot more to the families that the Martha O'Bryan Center helps, plus you get ice cream. Here's a video from last year's ice cream social:
