Summer kicks off at the Clague Museum

You know summer has arrived when the Westlake Historical Society hosts their annual ice cream social. The Society invites you to an old-fashioned ice cream social on Saturday, June 10, 1:00-4:00 p.m. It will be held on the lawn of the historic Clague House Museum, 1371 Clague Road.

This is a great opportunity to meet other people in the community and members of the historical society. Families and friends can all enjoy the beautiful setting, guided tours of the museum, and some of the best ice cream and treats around. The museum grounds are the perfect setting for this kickoff to summer. There is no charge for this event, but any donations received will benefit the historical society. A wide variety of cold and delicious ice cream, toppings of all kinds, and old-fashioned root beer floats will be available. Both cups and cones will also be available.

There will be guided tours of the museum, a silent auction, 50/50 raffle and door prizes. Please RSVP by calling 216-848-0680.

The ice cream social began many years ago as a way to celebrate Westlake's wonderful history. Please plan to join in the fun of the ice cream social. The museum store will be open for you to peruse as well.
