Howell Rotary is proud to present Howell Melon Ice Cream by pre-order of half gallons this year. This ice cream has a long history as part of Howell Melon Festival.
The ice cream is special because it is made from a long standing special recipe and is only made once each year. It is prepared fresh by Guernsey Dairy in Northville Michigan. Frank Spagnuolo was the inventor of the Howell Melon Ice Cream and we at Howell Rotary Club are pleased to carry on the tradition that he started many years ago.
Want to learn more about Howell Rotary? Come and check us out we meet every Monday at noon. We typically meet in the Administration Room of the Howell Schools Administration Building 411 N. Highlander Way. Follow our facebook page for updates, meeting links, and locations.
