The Kalamazoo GOP’s Unity Ice Cream Social has been moved to Thursday, Aug. 23. The event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at the KGOP office, 1911 W. Centre Ave. in Portage. The long tradition of holding a Unity Picnic will be replaced by an ice cream social, announced Chairman Scott McGraw. “This event is designed to bring candidates and supporters together after a long primary season, as we have had this cycle,” he said. Several varieties of ice cream and toppings will be available at the event, which is free-of-charge.
