It was a record turnout for the 29th annual Ice Cream Social, which took place earlier this month at Unalaska's high school.

Local businesses and community members donated door prizes, but the ice cream stole the show.

Preschool teacher Joni Scott, who coordinated the event, said 75 gallons of ice cream were served throughout the afternoon. 

"We are truly grateful to the community and local businesses for supporting Unalaska Preschool, and we couldn't have pulled off such a great event without so many volunteers," said Scott. "I'm grateful to everyone who jumped in and helped out." 

High school students, parents, and community members volunteered to scoop ice cream, serve toppings, and assist with event setup and cleanup. 

This year, the Unalaska Brewing Company offered root beer floats for sale and all proceeds supported the Unalaska Preschool Program.
