Warmer weather is starting to heat things up in Townsville.
And we’ve decided that every day is ice cream day here at Arcare North Shore.
But our favourite, most cherished moments are the days when we sit outside, listening to the old-time music at our DIY ice cream sundae stall.
The ladies from the lifestyle team serve our favourites in a cone or a delicious sundae.
Today was Banana sundae and chocolate which is everyone’s favourite combination!
We even got a treat when they cracked open the sprinkles and hundreds and thousands.
The ice cream sundae stall at Arcare North Shore brought back many wonderful childhood memories.
Clients recall running out of the house and chasing the ice cream van when they heard the infamous ice cream man’s bell.
He would drive around the local neighbourhood, loudly ringing his golden bell and shouting “ice cream! Ice cream!”
Through reminiscing their childhood, soon we all realised that even though our ice cream van stories come from different eras, we can all clearly recall the same jingle from the pink and white ice cream van.
The afternoon flew by so quickly as we laughed, shared stories and sang the lazy afternoon away.
We can’t wait to see what special flavour combination the next ice cream sundae day will bring!
