Ice cream, ice cream, we all scream for ice cream!

Remember that ditty as a youngster? Those who did probably were among the crowd who showed up Saturday, Feb. 15, at the Utopia Community Center for the annual Utopia Lions Club Ice Cream Crank-off. Approximately 130 folks attended.
Organized by Sid and Jacque Chaney, there were around 16 entries of various delectable concoctions. Several Leakey Lions Club members served as judges - sure they hated that job!
After much deliberation, first place went to Mary Ann Metz, Bob Clodfelter walked away with second place and Cindy Cockerill placed third. Folks can only imagine how hard it was for the judges to agree on the top three places.
Entertainment was provided by the Caliche Hill Band and - as they say in Utopia - "a great time was had by all!" Additionally, the Tim Ahrens family will receive around $670 from the event! "Thank you, once again Utopia, for your support of our community events!" said a Crank-Off spokesman.
