AUGUSTA – First Lady Ann M. LePage will host the fourth annual Military Families Ice Cream Social on the Blaine House Lawn on Monday, August 18 from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. Last year, more than 100 people joined the First Lady for the Military Families Ice Cream Social and this year between 100 and 120 military connected guests are expected to attend.

The social is a “Back to School” event, where each child will receive free school supplies, thanks to Operation Homefront and community members through sales at the Dollar Store. This 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 for deployment, and this is an opportunity for Maine’s military families to network, interact with each other, and enjoy some summer fun.”
