AUGUSTA – First Lady Ann LePage will host her sixth annual Military Families Ice Cream Social on the Blaine House Lawn on Tuesday, August 23, 2016 from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. This event is open to currently serving Military Families and Gold Star Families.

The social is a “Back to School” event, at which 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 connect, interact with each other, and enjoy some summer fun.
