LAWRENCE — Kansas Public Radio, based at the University of Kansas, will host an ice cream social this month to show appreciation to its member community.
The public radio station will serve complimentary Hy-Vee ice cream treats while supplies last from 5-7 p.m. July 28 at Maceli’s, 1031 New Hampshire St. Local artist Sky Smeed will perform live music.
This is a KPR member-exclusive event, and members will have the chance to claim their own KPR mug commemorating the station’s 70th anniversary. KPR will offer one mug per household, while supplies last. All listeners have the opportunity to become a member by contributing to KPR at kansaspublicradio.org/support.
Attendees also have the opportunity to mingle with KPR hosts and other listeners. For children, there will be balloon art provided by Balloonman and other family-friendly activities.
