AUGUSTA – First Lady Ann LePage will hold her second annual Military Families Ice Cream Social on the Blaine House Lawn on Tuesday, August 21, 2012 from 5:00-6:00 pm. Last year, more than 50 people joined the First Lady for the first Military Families Ice Cream Social.

The social is a “Back to School” event, where each child will receive free school supplies, provided by Operation Home Front. The event is free of charge, and open to Maine military families of any age, and any branch of service. Guests are encouraged to wear play clothes, and join in a variety of lawn games with the First Lady, while they enjoy their ice cream.

“Maine’s military service members, and their families, make tremendous sacrifices on behalf of all of us,” said First Lady Ann LePage. “Many children are faced with the difficult task of a parent leaving home during deployment, and this is an opportunity for Maine’s military families to network, interact with each other, and enjoy some summer fun,” continued Mrs. LePage.

Registration is required to attend the event. Individuals can contact Steve or Kala in the Child and Youth Program Office of the Maine National Guard at (207) 430-5773. People should leave their name, phone number, and how many guests will be attending. The Child and Youth Program Office will provide each registrant with a confirmation call.
