Cincinnati’s Longest Ice Cream Sundae Coming to WUMC

Cincinnati’s Longest Ice Cream Sundae will be on Saturday, August 10th. We are wanting to create community as a way to build relationships with our neighbors, as well as celebrate the wrap of summer for families. Jack Crego, a fifth grade student, developed this project for the See All the People mini grant as WUMC, where he was awarded $1000.

With you by our side at this upcoming event we are sure to achieve this delicious goal! The Ice Cream Sundae will be in front of Epworth Ave. wrapping around the church stretching 1.5 blocks.

WE NEED YOU to help put on this epic event. Hands are needed for both set up, take down, scoopers and clean up. To volunteer or ask questions please contact the church office at 513.661.3139.

Folks construct the longest ice cream sundae ever built in plastic rain gutters, which Home Depot donated, Sunday, at Serrano Intermediate School in Lake Forest. Their record breaker was 222 feet and 9 3/4 inches. ///ADDITIONAL INFO: 06.icecreamrecord.0430.ab – shot 04/29/12 – ARMANDO BROWN, FOR THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER – Serrano Intermediate School in Lake Forest breaks the record for the longest ice cream sundae on Sunday.
