Eating Ice Cream in Eldorado

The big event of the year here in Eldorado is the Ice Cream Social every August to benefit our Vista Grande Public Library.

It's a wonderful event: ice cream, music, more ice cream, a raffle and an auction, ice cream, lots of activities for the kids ... and ICE CREAM. I have always wanted to go to the ice cream social and this year was going to be my first chance. My illness made us think it over for a few days, but we ended up going for a couple of hours. I am still weak, but it was pleasant sitting in the shade and eating ice cream.

The picture is of a marimba band that played and was REALLY talented. Imagine listening to marimbas in Northern New Mexico!

Maybe the perfect time for you to come to visit is for the Ice Cream social next year!!!

I know we all love ice cream! What could be better than ice cream with all the toppings of our choice in late August????

Towanda there are two things I've found that will cure just about any illness. Green chili is one, ice cream the other.
Eat hearty, get well and enjoy.
