Ice Cream Social planned for August 1 in Bourbon
The United Methodist Women of Bourbon are busy planning and preparing for their Ice Cream Social again this year. It was a tradition for many years, but abandoned for awhile. Then last year they brought back many of the recipes that had been used, treasured, savored, and will be used again. This event has been their main fund raiser to help support various projects and charities throughout the year for not only local, but national and foreign needs.
