I feel bad sometimes for people who are lactose intolerant.  You must have to give up so many things! Hopefully the lactose fighting technology will keep improving with time.  For the rest of us, it's ice cream time! So, since everyone I've ever met loves ice cream, here are a few local ice cream socials to put on your calendar this summer.

1.  Trinity Pyrmont Lutheran

An Ice Cream Social will take place at Trinity Pyrmont Lutheran Church in Stover on June 10.  Entertainment will be provided from the Spring Hill Mennonite group.  The ice cream social will take place from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m.  There is a freewill donation for the food, which includes hot dogs, chili dogs, ham sandwiches, pie, cake, and ice cream.  The proceeds will go to Show Me Christian Youth Homes. Money from chances sold for a Waterloo Tool Box and cash prizes ($100.00, $50.00 and $25.00) will go to the Willow Manuel family for their expenses while 4-year old Willow is receiving treatments for cancer.  The Women's unit is also holding a silent auction with proceeds benefiting CASA, Morgan County Caring for Kids Coalition, and Heit's Point Lutheran Ministries.  Trinity Pyrmont Lutheran Church is located at 2831 Pyrmont Road, in Stover, MO.

2.  State Fair Community College

Their event will take place on August 27, 12:00 pm-3:00 pm.  This will be outside in between Stauffacher and Hopkins. Cost is free.

3.  St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Cole Camp.

SPLC will host the annual Ice Cream Social on Sunday, June 24. Serving begins at 6:00 p.m. Entertainment will start at 7:00. Free-will donations will benefit Gambia Uprising and the Cole Camp Museum. St. Paul's Lutheran Church is located at the corner of Hickory and Jefferson Street in Cole Camp, MO.

4.  The Center For Human Services.

They'll be meeting in the Convention Hall at Liberty Park for their ice cream social. They're working with The Ability Experience.  It features a large number of bicyclists that travel from coast to coast, making friendship stops to make friends with individuals with disabilities along the way.  I don't see a time on their website, so I'm gonna guess and say it's gonna run all day.  Might need to check up on that.

Enjoy your ice cream! If there are any other socials I didn't list, let us know about them in the comments!

Warmly yours,
