Another year of making and selling ice cream for the AIM and Grand is in the books. Thank you to all of the many volunteers that step up to make this fundraiser a success. The amount of ice cream made this year was a record at 850 gallons. Patrons were satisfied and showed it by returning often for their choice of Peach, Butter Pecan, Mint Chocolate Chip, Vanilla or Chocolate. Your support is very much appreciated!

The Candidate Forum on Septemeber 27, 2018 at the Randolph County Farm Bureau had a packed room. Each candidate had the opportunity to speak and after we enjoyed home made ice cream. Questions were submitted by the audience and addressed by the candidate asked. It was a successful event and always a great opportunity to hear what each has to say.
