Calumet United Fund: 52 Years of Service, Ice Cream Social Aug. 26th

Calumet United Fund Ice Cream Social

On August 26, 2012 from 4:00 PM – 6:00PM , the Calumet United Fund will be honoring the founding board members at their annual ice cream social at the Clarksville River Front Park (or the Clarksville Apple Shed if raining). There will be amazing home made ice creams of various flavors including wild blackberry, peach, strawberry, pineapple, chocolate, vanilla and more. There will also be many home made cakes and pies for everyone to enjoy. Join the event via Facebook.

Bring your lawn chairs and listen to live music performed by local talents including:

  • Kaitlyn Held
  • Heidi & Nathan Adams
  • Debbie Ingram
  • Christian Lewis
  • Jennifer Eisenhower
  • Morrow Sisters
  • Starks Family
  • Jacob David

A donation of $5 will get you a cake and ice cream serving and includes a bottle of water. You can also bring your old cell phone as a donation to be recycled by the Calumet United Fund. Don’t let your old phone sit in a drawer or go to a land fill. All money raised will be donated back into local community organizations, including:

  • After school programs
  • Meals for senior citizens and those in need
  • Support for local art programs
  • Athletic associations
  • Clarksville library and museum
  • OATS transportation for seniors

It was fifty two years ago that nine men and women from Clarksville, Paynesville and Annada Missouri, including my own grandfather G Jack Jones Jr., started a grass roots campaign for the benefit of our local community organizations. Today’s Calumet United Fund continues to strive in the original founders’ spirit of service to our community.

The Calumet United Fund hopes you can join them as they pay tribute to those original founding members from 1960:

  • Harry H. Crane: Clarksville, Missouri
  • Milton F. Duvall, Jr.: Clarksville, Missouri
  • William H. Guyton: Paynesville, Missouri
  • G. Jack Jones, Jr.: Clarksville, Missouri
  • Francis G. Luke: Clarksville, Missouri
  • Mrs. L. Bryant Mackey: Clarksville, Missouri
  • Mrs. H. A. Wells: Paynesville, Missouri
  • J. R. Whitmore: Annada, Missouri
  • J. D. Williamson: Clarksville, Missouri
