The City of Riverdale took a gamble with its annual ice cream social event (traditionally held the first Saturday of June) – and the gamble paid off in smiles dozens of posts on social media of residents sharing pictures with their friends and neighbors.
Council Member Kelly Krell worked out an arrangement with “Here’s The Scoop” (based in the Village of East Davenport) to drive their ice cream truck throughout the city, distributing free cones to residents. And while there were plenty of smiles, there were also suggestions for making the event even better next year – including making sure the truck delivers scoops to residents on Belmont Road and suggestions for finding more ways to share photos and videos with friends and neighbors.
