Bluffton, Indiana, was nicknamed “The Parlor City” over a century ago because its paved streets (a new phenomenon at the time) made the city “as clean as your parlor."
Emmanuel United Church of Christ, 8375 Phillips Road, will host an ice cream social next week.
The event is from 4 to 7 p.m., Thursday, July 19, at the church. Serving includes lots of homemade food. Tickets are $7 for adults and kids under 11 $4.
