AUGUSTA--First Lady Ann LePage will host her eighth-annual Military Families Ice Cream Social on the Blaine House Lawn on Wednesday, August 15, 2018, from 6 to 7 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 Mrs. LePage. "The ice cream social has been a highlight of my summer for the past several years and one I will miss. Seeing the smiling faces, meeting families and watching them connect with other military families brings me great joy and this, combined with ice cream and free school supplies, makes it an awesome evening for all!"
