Ice Cream Social

The MLNA Ice Cream Social is our biggest social event of the year.  This year it’s on Sunday, August 28, from 3:00 to 5:00 in Monta Loma Park.

In addition to free ice cream, attendees can enjoy Gizmo Gary’s balloon creations and a display of Monta Loma history items.

Our CERT members will display equipment and information to help us stay safe during a disaster.  The Garden Club members will sponsor a plant exchange and bring information about Monarch butterflies.  Neighborhood Watch and bike-registration information will be available.

The Monta Loma PTA will offer information and spirit wear.  Living Classroom members will explain how garden-based science works in our local schools.  The Mountain View Educational Foundation, which helps our schools, hopes to come, too.

Recology Zero Waste will bring recycling information, and the Recreation Department will offer information on activities.

Barring an emergency, you can chat with Mountain View police officers.  A crew from the Fire Department may bring an engine during the last half hour.

Members of the City Council and the board members of the Mountain View  Whisman School District and the Mountain View Los Altos High School District have been invited.

Canopy will bring some activities and provide “robust/timely/science-based tree information. Bring your tree questions!”   The Friends of Mountain View Parks, an organization advocating for more parks and open space, will have a table.

A buggy pulled by robot horses is anticipated.  You may also find live music by neighborhood bands, and Gloria’s cotton-candy machine is expected about 4:00.

Updates will be posted as they become available.
