|Dewey Hall Invites South County Neighbors to Ice Cream Social|
|01:42PM / Monday, August 16, 2021|
SHEFFIELD, Mass. — Dewey Hall will hold an "ice cream social" in its back yard to greet South Berkshire neighbors, new and old, from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 31.
The event is free, and ice cream will be provided by sponsor High Lawn Farm.
There will also be lawn games, a coloring table, door prizes, and live music from the Michael Junkins and Dan Broad Jazz Duo.
The first 50 families to attend will receive screen printed canvas tote bags filled with swag and information from Sheffield related businesses and organizations. The bags have the original Sheffield Friendly Union missions statement " . . . to increase kindly feelings and promote intelligence and cheerfulness." and were sponsored by 10 Sheffield businesses, with many others participating in providing items.
In case of rain, the event will be moved indoors. Attendees are urged to bring their masks in case they are needed.
"We'd like to invite everyone to gather as a community, meet folks who are new to the area, and learn more about Dewey Hall. We've been thinking a lot about the original mission of the hall and we are having fun creating community centered events that live up to the 1871 mission statement," said Dewey Hall Manager, Maggie McRae.
