Here’s the Scoop: Lake County firefighters to serve as celebrity scoopers for local ice cream parlor

RELEASE DATE: August 15, 2008

CLERMONT — Lake County firefighters will scoop up some donations from Simka’s Sweets when they pose as celebrity scoopers for the ice cream parlor, located at 600 Cagan Park Ave., Suite 105, Clermont, on Saturday, Aug. 23, from 12 to 2 p.m.

“We’ve done celebrity scoop nights for various institutions before, such as local schools and Boy Scout troops,” said Sandy Cagan, owner of Simka’s Sweets. “It’s just a fun time for the community to see people working in the ice cream parlor that are not normally scooping ice cream.”

For the firefighters’ guest roles as parlor jockeys, Simka’s Sweets will donate a portion of its day’s profits for educating children about fire prevention. During the celebrity-scooping event, fire safety information will be shared with customers and a fire engine will be outside to view.

For more information about the celebrity-scooping event, call Simka’s Sweets at (352) 243-2230 or e-mail simkasweets@cagan.com.
