|SHL Announcement - Ice Cream Social|
The following e-mail announcement was sent by Amy Monsky to the Family Friendly Activities mailing list:
The summer is coming to a close and school is about to start back up and what better way to celebrate the changing of the seasons than with ice cream! Let's meet at the beautiful Charles Pinckney National Historic Site. We have the picnic tables by the shelter (near the parking lot) reserved. I'll bring chocolate and vanilla ice cream and bowls, spoons, and napkins. You bring the toppings and we'll have a sundae. Suggestions are cones, syrups, fruit toppings, whipped topping, cherries, nuts, sprinkles, or even other ice cream flavors. If someone could bring drinks and cups, that would be great, too!
When is it? This Sunday, 8/19, from noon-2pm.
So who's invited? Everyone! Adults, kids, even dogs. Leashes are required for the 4-legged little ones, but optional for the 2-legged variety. :)
What is there to do? In a word, lots. Charles Pinckney was a principal author and a signer of the United States Constitution. This remnant of his coastal plantation is preserved to tell the story of a "forgotten founder," his life of public service, the lives of enslaved African Americans on South Carolina Lowcountry plantations and their influences on Charles Pinckney. The grounds are beautiful with walking trails as well as a visitors center. The park offers a Junior Ranger Program for kids 12yo and under, so there is something for everyone.
What's the cost? Is there a cost too high for such fun as we will have with such fun freethinking friends as will be there? I don't think so, but you'll be glad to know it is free. Zip! Nada! So show up!

I hope to see you on Sunday! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
