Ice Cream Social set August 4

Historic Christ Church & Museum will host its annual Ice Cream Social from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. August 4 at 420 Christ Church Road in Weems.

Children and their families are invited to explore colonial history, games and crafts outside the churchyard while enjoying ice cream treats, lemonade and cookies, reported education director and curator Robert Teagle.

Activities will include writing with quill pens, making whirligigs and ball and cup toys, bowling with nine pins, dressing in colonial clothing, cutting colonial silhouettes and excavating “shoebox” archaeological sites.

Tours of the 1735 church also will be available and the museum includes several hands-on areas for children, Teagle said.
