Happy National Ice Cream day! In 1984, Congress designated July as national ice cream month and President Ronald Reagan followed up with a Presidential Proclamation urging “the people of the United States to to observe these events with appropriate ceremonies and activities.” While it appears that the Senate Joint Resolution and Presidential Proclamation only technically apply to the year 1984, do you really need an excuse to celebrate ice cream?
