Ice Cream Social Volunteers

The planning for the 11th Annual Free Ice Cream Social is well under way, and it’s shaping up to be a wonderful day! In addition to the free ice cream, there will also be free kids games and rides, live family-friendly entertainment, and so much more!

This year’s event is being held on Saturday, June 15, 2019, from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The event will again be held at Riverside Gardens in Leo.

As always, we depend on over a hundred volunteers to make this event a continued success. Volunteers are needed to run games, scoop ice cream, monitor inflatables, dress in costume, and various other duties. If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the submission form below.

PLEASE NOTE: Volunteers must be at least 12 years of age. Junior volunteers (age 8-11) are invited to participate, however they will be paired with another adult volunteer to help run games. If you have young children who will be at the event, and you wish to volunteer, we ask that your children be under someone else’s care during your shift so that you are able to focus your full attention on your assigned job.

All positions will be filled on a first-come basis. You are welcome to invite friends, parents, spouses, etc., to volunteer with you. YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A HOSPITAL VOLUNTEER to work at the ice cream social.

Questions about volunteering may be directed to Krista Layman at An email will be sent closer to the event date detailing your specific assigned duty and further instructions.

Please complete the submission form for EACH person volunteering (for example, if both you and your spouse are volunteering, please submit form twice – once with each name). THANK YOU for your interest in volunteering!!
