Shelton ice cream shop celebrates grand opening
SHELTON - Even though I wrote a story in April when Dave and Dave's Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor opened downtown I had to go back Wednesday and be part of the grand opening festivities.
I do enjoy ice cream. But who doesn't?
I thought there might be samples, and I was right.
It's always good to do research for a story. On Wednesday that meant sampling scoops of premium French-style ice cream, as well as delectable gourmet grilled cheese sandwich triangles, including one with arugula in it.
Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce President Bill Purcell said, "Much like pizza, we have a love affair with ice cream." He said it was a day to "celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurship."
Mayor Mark Lauretti joked, "When you're giving away free ice cream you can bet Bill Purcell and (Shelton Economic Development Corporation President) Jimmy Ryan will be here."
Lauretti congratulated the Grants and wished them "many successful years in this location."
Dave Sr. said "no one is more pro-business in the Valley than Shelton."
No doubt Trumbull resident Francesca Lemma, 8, summed up the opinions of everyone on hand when she said the ice cream was "delicious."
