Youth Enjoy a Summer Adventure Trip

The trip started with a stop at the Well’s Blue Bunny Ice Cream Parlor in LeMars. The group toured the recently remodeled ice cream parlor and enjoyed the new exhibits about Well’s history and how the ice cream is made. The highlight of the stop was eating the ice cream. The next adventure was a dinner theater at the Brown’s Theater. The group enjoyed a full buffet of made-from-scratch Iowa cooking along with the Americana Summer Celebration Show performed by the Brown Family.
