Ice Cream Party for All

By |July 16th, 2020|Ben Lee Properties' News|

My family and I were so happy to host an ice cream party for the neighborhood last month. It was really nice to see so many of you enjoying a delicious summer treat and it was fun for us to provide this unofficial kick off to summer event. King Kone has long been a favorite vendor and we’ve used them many times before but never for something as sweet as this. I think it’s fair to say we all were due a little break from the norm and nothing soothes the soul better than a delicious ice cream cone! If you missed the party,no worries- we’ll likely do another one in a few months. Until then, here are a few pictures from a really fun day!
