I am a huge believer in loving where you live, and have taken it upon myself to coordinate activities and events for my family’s neighborhood on the South Shore. I love having a reason to mingle and get to know my neighbors, and we have started some super fun traditions that I hope my children will remember when they are grown.
For the last three years, I have hosted a back-to-school ice cream social in our front yard. What started as my way of celebrating the end of summer and my first baby heading to kindergarten has evolved to a neighborhood event, and it’s something we have all come to look forward to.
This year, I hired Blanche’s Gourmet Ice Cream to come and serve our neighbors. I had stumbled upon Blanche’s on social media and loved the whimsical branding, homemade waffle cones (drool!) and the fact that the business was woman-owned. I contacted Kate and the rest is history!
Blanche’s Gourmet Ice Cream is Owned and Operated by Kate Amendola, a Woburn native who was tired of the corporate grind and wanted to find more joy in her work.
