Ice Cream Eating Contest

News from our networking events

On August 2nd we beat the heat at IECRM with our first-ever “Adult” Ice Cream Social, sponsored by Allcable. The ice cream was donated by Cold Stone Creamery in Thornton.

Winner of the Ice Cream Eating Contest was Sam Gluck, one of our newest apprentice instructors who works for Weifield Group Contracting! Sam was first of nine competitors to finish 1/2 gallon of ice cream in record time. Check out Facebook for funny photos from the event! (“Like” our page!)
