I Scream, You Scream, We all Scream for Ice Cream!

Happy Birthday to the Ice Cream Cone!

Happy Birthday to the Ice Cream Cone!

We at WamBam Fence love everything summer and outdoors because vinyl and aluminum fencing have a lot to do with the great outdoors.

Did you know that today marks the birthday of the ice cream cone?  On July 23, 1904, the ice cream cone was first introduced at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition (source). Ever since then, both kids and adults alike have enjoyed this delicious treat!

You may not realize that ice cream is relatively easy to make. If you’re feeling adventurous this summer and want to do something fun with your kids, give this simple recipe a whirl. You won’t miss the preservatives found in commercially made ice cream, either. We recommend lessening the sugar, and you may want to double the batch because it won’t last long!

An Easy Recipe to Make Your Own Ice Cream

An Easy Recipe to Make Your Own Ice Cream

Easy Strawberry Ice Cream

What you need

Gadgets:
Food processor

Ingredients:
1 (10 ounce) package frozen fruit (strawberries, mixed berries, or peaches work well)
1/2 cup sugar (if you want to cut back on the sugar, by all means do so!)
2/3 cup heavy cream

Directions:
Combine the frozen strawberries and sugar in a food processor. Once the fruit is roughly chopped, slowly pour in the heavy cream while the processor is running until fully incorporated into the fruit. You can serve immediately or freeze.

We recommend indulging in this treat in your backyard where you can enjoy the sunshine of summer. If your backyard is not quite safe or secure, we’d love to provide you with a vinyl or aluminum fence!

Helping Hurricane Sandy Recovery

Hurricane Sandy did some awful damage to St. Rose High School Convent in Belmar NJ.

Hurricane Sandy and it’s Vicious Aftermath

So much destruction

The ground is flooded and the fence is destroyed

When Boy Scout Zach Canderozzi, a Freshman, asked us to help him with his service project to help get his Eagle ranking, it was impossible to say no, particularly after seeing the pictures.

Zach wanted to clean out the area and re-landscape so that the Sisters could enjoy the outdoors again. Labor was going to be provided by his fellow boy scouts over the course of several weekends, and they were looking for donations.

Hard work pays off

Hard work pays off

We shipped Zach enough panels of Jiminy Picket Vinyl Fence to complete the fence portion of the project. We enjoyed the pictures and the email he sent through informing us of his progress:

Driving Pipe into the ground

“I just wanted to let you know that the fence is almost completely installed. It really was very easy for me to put in with my Dad and Scoutmaster. Some other work has been going on at the school in the same area and we just have to install the last 2 panels this weekend. Thought you might like to see some pictures of the progress Ive made….So many of the Sisters who live there, workers who are doing repairs, and passerbys have stopped to compliment the fence. It really gives the project a finishing touch. More pictures will come. I cant thank you enough.

All the best,

Zach”

Well done Zach!

Well done Zach!

Zach, you’re an inspiring teenager. Thanks for letting us be a part of your Service Project. We have no doubt you’ll eventually get your Eagle Scout ranking!
