36th annual ice cream social
WORLAND, Wyo. (July 14, 2011)-The 36th annual ice cream social and carnival was held on Thursday, July 14 as a fundraiser for the Hospital Auxiliary.
For 36 years, the ladies have worked diligently preparing, setting up games, baking, getting donations, ordering supplies and so much more to make the annual event one of the biggest community events of the summer.
More than 20 Washakie Medical Center employees volunteered to help with this favorite summer community annual event.
All the hard work pays off, when families come out to eat homemade cakes and big scoops of ice cream and be entertained with old-fashioned children’s carnival games. Kids earned prizes for playing bean bag toss, duck pond, fishing booth, musical chairs, and enjoyed face painting, fortune telling, and other carnival entertainment.
We offered old-fashioned prices too! Games cost only 40 cents each and adult ice cream and cake tickets only $1.50 and child tickets were 75 cents each.
Families could even eat an affordable dinner because the Worland Job’s Daughters sold hot dogs and drinks. Other activities included the popular Washakie Sheriff and Police department demonstration starring Devon, the Belgian Malinois dog trained to find illegal drugs and assist in apprehending criminals.
The Hospital Auxiliary uses the funds raised to purchase items to improve patient care and comfort. Last year, the auxiliary purchased flat-screen TVs for all the patient rooms.
