"popsicle stickin it to the man" - It's like a midsummer's night dream - Students of NoLA Rising give away tasty treats
Thanks to the culinary genius of Kelly Jacques, V.P. of S.O.N.R. (Students of NoLA Rising) at Tulane University, we were able to cool down the community on a beautiful Sunday afternoon with a plethora of homemade and hand-crafted popsicles.
From toddlers, to park workers, to profoundly parched pooches, we brought smiles to faces and delight to palates. Unfortunately, our little event was short-lived, due mainly impart to the assertive whims of a polite, yet disgruntled Audubon Park security guard.
The authority figure felt it was necessary that we have a merchant's license to give away free treats. After a two minute vocal spat, we realized that intelligent argument would have no sway over "Ivan's" sentiments, and thought it would be best to vacate the premises before our popsicle high began to turn sour.
Regardless of its brevity, there is no doubt that our give-a-way brought joy to all those who participated. At least we now have left overs for Saturday's paint party! Many thanks to all who attended.
