National Ice Cream Day

Today, July 19th, is National Ice Cream Day and the month of July is also National Ice Cream Month. This celebration was started by Kentucky’s own Senator, Walter Dee, in 1984 and was signed into law by President Ronald Reagan.

Ice cream is one of America’s favorite frozen dessert with every American consuming about 13 liters each year. Its beginnings in North America date back to 1744 and has been documented that Ben Franklin, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson were known to have regularly eaten it.

To honor this day, we paid a visit to the Lawrenceburg’s Dairy Queen. Greeted with big smiles from all the employees and the General Manager, Jacob Cox, we found ourselves served with a delightful cup of vanilla ice cream: a perfect treat on this hot summer day. Dairy Queen has been serving delicious soft serve ice cream to the community for over 25 years. Take some time today and treat yourself to some yummy ice cream.
