DOVER AIR FORCE BASE, Del. -- The 436th Force Support Squadron Eagle Lanes Bowling Center is now offering frozen treats on wheels at Dover Air Force Base for the summer season.

The ice cream truck offers a variety of 11 flavors of frozen dessert and it is easily identified - just follow the music. Some of the flavors offered are orange cream, vanilla, fudge and chocolate chip sandwiches and can be found on the ice cream truck driving around the base and housing areas from 12 - 8 p.m.

"I love my job because it's fun and I think it's a wonderful idea to buy ice cream because it's a great way to cool yourself down with a nice, cool treat," said Edison Malaga, 436th FSS ELBC Ice Cream Man. "Everyone likes ice cream, who doesn't?"

"While I'd never thought I'd drive an ice cream truck, it's good experience and seeing the excitement on the children's faces makes this job worthwhile," said Mr. Malaga.

"My children ask to buy from the ice cream truck whenever it rolls around to our street," said Lorraine Padgett, 436th FSS ELBC Assistant Manager. "The ice cream truck is one of the things kids and squadrons look forward being out in the hot summer day."

The ice cream truck will be riding around everyday, all summer long except for inclement weather, holidays and temperature below 70 degrees.
