Linfield students and children of all ages relished the world’s largest ice cream social Sept. 25 from 5-8 p.m. outside Coldstone Creamery near campus.

In partnership with Make-A-Wish Foundation, Coldstones across the country participated in the social this week, accepting donations  for the charity.

“A lot of [Linfield students] came earlier and went back to spread the word,” senior Chris Schuldt, ASLC president, said.

Schuldt was behind the counter handing out pre-scooped, three-ounce ice cream cups to customers speeding through the line.

“It’s a fun little atmosphere,” senior ice cream enthusiast Steph Caster said.

The fun atmosphere was embellished by two moon bounces; a fire truck for people to explore, courtesy of the McMinnville Fire Department; as well as a table facilitated by the sheriff’s department. People also had the chance to sit on a police motorcycle.

Josh Peterson, an employee of Coldstone, was taking donations at the door as people entered the creamery.

“I would say 30 to 40 percent of the people who have been here were Linfield students,” he said.
