Residents love some old-fashioned fun!

I headed over to the Weber-Blaess Ice Cream Social on Sunday. I wasn't to thrilled with the early afternoon showers, but luckily the rain held off and the event took place. From antique cars to a sing-a-long barbershop quartet, the second annual ice cream social had some old-fashioned fun for everyone.There were nearly 400 residents that attended the event. This particular event sure did draw a large crowd. The social also recognized the Weber-Blaess One-Room Schoolhouse that was placed on the National Schoolhouse Register in May. Residents enjoyed a sing-a-long barbershop quartet, bucket brigade, croquet tournament and homemade ice cream, hot dogs, cake and a beverage were used as a fundraiser for the school. There was even a silent auction where residents could bid on a lunch with Superintendent Scot Graden, a ride in a Saline Area fire truck or even a birthday party at Weber-Blaess. From all the people I talked to either young or old it seemed like everyone was enjoying themselves. I mean who would pass up some old-fashioned ice cream. I certainly wouldn't!
