Ice Cream Carnival Coming Soon!

You know when it's summer time at Westfield. It's time for Ice Cream Carnival. The event is taking place on Sunday, August 3 and Monday, August 4 from 10:00 to 4:00 p.m. The following advice was found in an advertisement book at the turn of the 20th Century. I'm sure it was meant to be taken in a light hearted way.

Eating The Ice Cream Cone
Gentle Advice for the Gentlewoman

If the occasion should arise when a Gentlewoman is offered an ice cream cone,
she should refrain from eating it in a public place.
Exposure of the tongue by using its tip to lick the ice cream from the cone
will serve only to mark her as a woman of unsavoury and unattractive appetites.
The woman should take the ice cream cone home,
place it upside down in a shallow dish,
discard the cone and eat the ice cream with a spoon.
