Every once in a while I find a social media post that I feel the need to amplify, so here you go. This morning in my feed was a post from Jennifer Mahr, Selectman for the Town of Middlebury, Connecticut. In the post, Mahr shared a photo of a handwritten letter she received from a ten year old resident named Bryce. The adorable letter says "Dear Ms. Mahr, Hello my name is Bryce and I'm 10 years old. I am a fellow resident of the Town of Middlebury. I am writing to you today to ask if we could have ice cream trucks in the Summer. In 2021 we had ice cream trucks come by in the Summer, but they stopped it. Me and my friends on the street like ice cream during those hot summer days. We play outside in the summer, and we like ice cream. If you read this and respond to this thank you! From, Bryce".

Mahr responded with the headline 'Small Towns Need Ice Cream', and said that she'll do her best to get the word out to ice cream trucks. The post has received tons of likes, loves, and an abundance of something rare of social media - positive comments.

Ice cream truck owners of Connecticut, load up the bomb pops, and encroach on Quassy's territory, Bryce and his friends need you this summer.
