"In 1994 the Iowa State Legislature officially declared Le Mars, Iowa the Ice Cream Capital of the World." I guess that is one way to draw attention to your state. This designation worked for me. It made me drive 26 miles further than what I intended. (Even my atlas had it printed in red next to Le Mars about the Ice Cream Capital of the World Museum. Yes, I use a GPS, but I still like looking at a map for the bigger picture all at once.)
I missed "Ice Cream Days" this year. I'll try to attend next year.
In 2009, when I moved to Cheyenne, Wyoming, I was impressed with the artwork spread around the city in the form of decorative cowboy boots. As I explored the city of Le Mars, Iowa, I was impressed with the artwork spread around the city in the form of ice cream cones. Capitalizing on being declared the ice cream capital of the world is quite evident.
This ice cream cone was right in front of my parking spot. How appropriate!
I would love to have these images displayed at school in some fashion.
Yes, the cone pictured above was displayed inside a bank entryway.
Give thanks to God for the many blessings we enjoy.
