It’s become a summer tradition here at the Jake Menghini Museum, a mid-July evening of treats cool and creamy, and music both rousing and dreamy. It’s scheduled for Tuesday, July 16. Ice cream sundaes will be served beginning at 6:00, with the Norway City Band bringing us the entertainment of the evening, beginning at 7:00. The museum is located on Odill Drive, south off US2 on the west end of town. Ample free parking, and handicap parking is available, too. No seating is provided, so bring your own chairs and/or blankets. There’s no charge for this event, but donations will be much appreciated.
