LACEY MUSEUM HOSTS “A MIDSUMMER’S ICE CREAM” EVENT
LACEY, WA, June 30, 2015: As part of the first annual Lacey Days celebration, officials at Lacey’s history museum are offering free ice cream to the first 100 visitors on Friday, July 10th, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
“Lacey Days is all about reconnecting with friends and neighbors and a big part of that is learning about who we are and where we come from,” said Museum Curator Erin Quinn Valcho. “A visit to the Lacey Museum is a wonderful, free way to discover Lacey’s surprising past and learn something about the community we call home.”
The city’s Historical Commission is organizing the educational evening – called “A Midsummer’s Ice Cream” – which will provide free ice cream with toppings donated by Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt. Event highlights include oral presentations about the city’s rich and diverse history by volunteers in period costumes, Michaels is sponsoring free craft and coloring activities for kids, the Lacey Fire Department is bringing its antique 1945 Seagraves fire engine, and a barber shop quartet will be performing to entertain visitors.
The museum is located within the Lacey Historical Neighborhood at 829 Lacey Street SE, and is open Thursdays and Fridays from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., or by appointment by calling (360) 438-0209.
Lacey Days is a two-week event from June 27th through July 12th that features community events and activities. For more information, please visit www.laceydays.org.
