The residents of The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer's Center of Excellence in Collegedale, enjoyed a surprise ice cream cone party to celebrate the birthday of the ice cream cone. According to the International Ice Cream Association 1904 is considered the real birth year of the ice cream cone because of the great stir it caused at the St. Louis World's Fair. The residents at the memory care community celebrated with crafts, hats, sunglasses and of course, ice cream cones.
