Thanks to the members and volunteers of the Troy Nature Society, the Ice Cream Social / Open House held on August 10, 2014 was a successful event. The music (flutists greeted the visitors on the front porch and Amelia Tian played the viola on the grounds), pond dipping, artists on the trails, family scavenger hunts, photo displays, Junior Naturalist Club and a "live compost log" were some of the activities experienced.
Over 320 visitors attended the event sponsored by Steelhouse Tavern of Troy, thanks Steelhouse!
The biggest hit? It depends on who you ask but Ray's Ice Cream was high on the list! Both adults and children enjoyed their discoveries during pond dipping. The large Bolders located at the entrance of the Lloyd A. Stage Nature Center were occupied with children almost an hour after the event!
Didn't attend? Plan on attending next year to get in on the fun!!
