July is National Ice Cream Month!
National Ice Cream Month is held in each year in July in the United States. Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month in 1984. He also named the third Sunday in July as National Ice Cream Day. Reagan recognized the popularity of ice cream in the United States (90% of the nation’s population consumes ice cream) and stated that these two events should be observed with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.” (Source)
Give away free ice cream treats around town along with information about your church, or host a homemade ice cream festival at the church campus and offer free tastings for guests. Use this fun day to do outreach into the community!
