"Every year we bring more ice cream, and every year we run out," said Kristen Mulroe, owner of What’s the Scoop ice cream stand, at Saturday's Big Band Sound Concert in Goshen.

Mulroe said they served 300 cups of free ice cream, a record for this event, which the Goshen Public Library has offered for 17 years and counting. She scooped for the concert for many years as a What’s the Scoop employee, and for the past three years as owner of the stand, which is located at West Main and Matthews Streets.

Mulroe says she loves this tradition thanking the community for their support.

And, she added: "I love this music!”

Helping scoop out those 300 servings was summer employee Catherine Cremin, a Goshen High School 2019 honor graduate, who's headed to Marist College in a few weeks.

The free concert was made possible by the sponsorship of Norton & Christianson. It's the last to be held on the lawn of the former library. It couldn’t be held at the new library at 366 Main Street because the outdoor patio and landscaping have not yet been completed.
