As a sweet way to say, “Thank You for Your Patriotism,” Leopold’s Ice Cream will give any child at or below the age of 12 (accompanied by an adult) who can recite the Pledge of Allegiance, a free child’s scoop of super-premium, homemade ice cream. The kickoff will take place on Wednesday, July 1, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Leopold’s flagship store, located at 212 E. Broughton St.
The Broughton St. location will hold addition al
