Join us as we demonstrate and taste Marjorie Rawlings' recipe for mango ice cream! Staff and visitors will be hand cranking & churning this welcome treat on a hot summer's day. Rawlings liked to make this for herself and her friends, but of course the whole batch had to be eaten before it melted, so we will too!
It is anticipated that the ice cream will be ready for consumption at 11AM and again at 3PM. To participate in the hand cranking, come approximately 30-60 minutes prior to these times.
