The 2010 Reunion Ice Cream Social Poll is now closed. You all are a bunch of weirdos: out of 58 votes, Bavarian Raspberry Fudge won by a landslide. Bavarian Raspberry Fudge? Do you hate America and puppies and babies in miniature versions of grown up clothing?

There will also be three other TBD varieties, so don’t fret if your favorite didn’t win.

Friday, June 5th 
Dinner
Italian favorites – salad bar, garlic bread sticks, pizza station – cheese and pepperoni, pasta bar – alfredo sauce, marinara sauce, italian meatballs with marinara (served with red pepper and italian cheeses), tuscan vegetables, Cornell Dairy ice cream, Italian dessert stations, cream puffs, chocolate eclairs
