Effingham, IL – September 14, 2022, The Effingham County Chamber and the Effingham Regional Growth Alliance excitedly invites you to the PAVE Ice Cream Social scheduled for Sunday, September 18 from 2:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. at the Effingham Event Center.

PAVE stands for Promoting A Vision for Effingham County. PAVE was born through the MAPPING program led by the Illinois Institute for Rural Affairs. Through five, three hours sessions, action teams were formed in five areas: Parks & Recreation, Housing, Childcare, Workforce & Education, and Festivals & Events. Each action team will have their own table to promote their projects.

The Ice Cream Social will be a great time to learn about each action team, join an action team, and talk about what’s happening in the community. There will be games, prizes, live music, and of course, free ice cream and refreshments courtesy of Culver’s of Effingham and Pepsi MidAmerica!

This is a FREE family-friendly event. All are welcome!
