I love Ronald Regan – he declared July National Ice Cream Month. I also love the month of July. Not just for the ice cream thing but also because my birthday is in July. I am one of those people that celebrates all month long. July is typically a fun month for me!
Birthdays come and go and after you’ve had several, the memories tend to fade. But I have a handful of favorite birthday celebrations. One in particular was in 2000. For a number of years, A Cleaner World sponsored a summer reading program called Read to Ride. The program was designed to encourage kids to read during summer break. For every book they read, they entered for a chance to win one of 50 bicycles we planned on giving away.
We decided a great way to wrap up the program was to bring all the winners together to celebrate. This particular year we opted to meet at Triad Park and have the kids bring their bicycles. Given it was a hot Saturday in July, we asked Carvel to bring their ice cream cart. Now can you think of a better way to spend your birthday than with 50 excited kids and a hot fudge sundae for breakfast?
So I hesitated to include this but here’s a picture from that fun birthday. Keep in mind it was 12 years ago so please no comments about the hair!
