Ice Cream Social 2003

Ice cream in the shade

The 100th anniversary of flight was the theme for the 2003 Ice Cream Social held Sunday, July 27, 2003, on the grounds of the Catlin Heritage Museum.

The weather was hot but with a cooling breeze most of the time.

In keep with the theme, there was a display of model radio-controlled airplanes by Gene Ward, Carl Young, Charlie Roderick and James Black of the Model Radio Controlled Plane Club.

Ron Colwell displayed various books about flight and some of Jeff's model planes.

Linda Berry provided a sheet of the stamp commemorating the 100 years of flight.

Mark and Janet Knight displayed their ultra-light airplane.
