SAFETY, SAFETY, MORE SAFETY
Our Opening Day is approaching - Thursday, March 25, 11:00 am till 8:00 pm. It might very well have a wet opening, but rain or shine we are on. Keep a close watch on all of our social media for all the latest updates.
From the earliest days Papa Robb's Paradise Ice was designed to resemble a vacation shack on the beach. Much more important, it was designed as an inclusive - very inclusive - place. Everyone, & we mean everyone, is welcome. A lot of things have changed in our world, but our policy has not changed.
The world may have its rules & regulations, but Papa Robbs has its own set of regulations. Behavior & safety are the basis for Papa's Rules. We have been & remain the place where all people can bring their families - their children - and feel safe. Not bullies, no bullets, no bigots. Your children are safe with us.
We are excited about having you back. The old place has been spruced up, cleaned up, some new paint. Not only can you now sit down, but our playground has been cleaned & sanitized. So come & have a good time seeing old friends & making new ones.
While we have several ideas about special events, co-ops, etc for this year, we have two such specials from the very start. On Friday, March 26 our friends at the Sojourney Church will host a Happy Hour(s) at Papa Robbs. From 4:00 pm until our 8:00 pm closing there will be a $1.00 - one dollar - discount per item on all of our products. An extra reason to be Happy!
On Saturday, March 27, our neighbors at Eva Drive Baptist Church will join us & host their annual Easter Party. Games, surprises & free hotdogs for all. This is open to the public. Other events will soon begin to happen so again, keep reading blogs & checking our web site, facebook, etc.
Meanwhile, you please be safe. And DO NOT FORGET your masks. Last - we know you have ideas, so keep sending them to us - please.

BLOG -- 2021 -- BLOG OF 3/7/21
Well, well, well -- We're back & very happy & excited about 2021. So, let's get to it.
There is so much news that we must break it into a few blogs. It is VERY IMPORTANT to read our blogs, posts, etc as promise to do better with our communications this year. Social Media posts, texting, blogs, etc will be better & more frequent.
Let's begin with a huge THANK YOU. Papa Robbs survived last year because so many of you supported us through a challenging year for us all. In spite of limitations & restrictions you came & supported us.
Churches were helpful also as were businesses that hosted important but innovative social events -- Drive In Socials is a fine example. So again - thank you to everyone. Now to this year:
OPENING - weather permitting we will open on Thursday, March 25 at 11:00 am. We will be open every day except Mondays from 1:00 am to 8:00 pm. About May first these hours & days will change & expand.
YES there will be seating & you will notice a few changes but we feel our seating choices will be safe. New ground covers, mulch, etc - all cleaned, painted & sanitized.
PLAYGROUND will be open. Cleaned & professionally sanitized.
GENERAL REGULATIONS, known far & wide as "Papa's Rules" are still in force. There have always meant simply as good manners & behavior. Be kind as we are all family at Papas. Remember your masks, masks & masks.
Watch for more news to come & we will see you soon.
