Annual cruise-in, ice cream social set

MAYFIELD — The Mayfield Historical Society will hold its second annual cruise-in, Hitrick & Books concert, and ice cream social from 6 to 8 p.m. July 12 at the Rice Homestead, 328 Riceville Road, according to a news release.

In case of rain, the car cruise-in will be canceled and the event will be held at the Mayfield Presbyterian Church, 22 N. Main St.

The society invites owners of antique and hot rod vehicles to attend. The admission is free and the first 50 commitments will receive a dash plaque commemorating the event. The gate will open at 5:30 p.m. for the car setup.

From 6 to 8 p.m. Hitrick & Brooks will be in concert on the lawn. The attendees are asked to bring lawn chairs or blankets; however, some picnic tables will be available.

The society’s annual ice cream social will also be held with ice cream, cake, and a beverage available with a donation of $3 for adults and $2 for children under age 8. In addition to the ice cream, hot dogs with the locally “famous hot dog sauce” will be for sale. The descendants of Lee Goulet, owner of Lee’s Snack Bar in the village, donated the secret meat recipe to the Mayfield Historical Society as well as its snack bar signs which will be on display. Two of Lee’s Snack Bar waitresses, Marie Hillman Ruby and Linda Dingman Stoller, will be serving the hot dogs.

There will also be free tours given of the Rice Homestead which includes its textile exhibit. The digital Video disc “Harnessing Nature: Building the Great Sacandaga” will be available for sale.
