KPR cancels 2020 KPR Ice Cream Social

Fri, 05/22/2020

LAWRENCE – Kansas Public Radio was set to hold its fourth annual KPR Ice Cream Social on June 18 at Maceli’s. The ice cream social draws nearly 300 KPR members and listeners from around the area. Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19, KPR has decided to cancel the 2020 event.

The ice cream social is a free community event where KPR members can get ice cream in their own KPR member mug designed by a KPR listener, meet on-air hosts and win KPR swag. KPR also provides ice cream for nonmembers in a paper cup. KPR is working toward planning smaller-scale distribution of this year’s mug to KPR members and sustainers while being mindful of health and safety concerns. Follow KPR on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to see announcements on potential distribution of the 2020 KPR Member Mug.
