On Tuesday, October 30, Governor Mitch Daniels and Lt. Governor Becky Skillman joined state cabinet members as celebrity ice cream scoopers for the first State Employee Community Campaign (SECC) Ice Cream Social. This was the first multi-agency SECC event to be led by Governor Daniels, Lt. Governor Skillman, and the cabinet members. All the ice cream and supplies for the event were donated by Smith Dairy Farm, Kelsay Farms, McFarling Foods, and ADCI.
From 1:30 to 3 p.m. in the Indiana Government Center South atrium, ice cream sundaes were available for a $5 donation with all proceeds benefitting the Indiana Trails Fund. This fund, an organization committed to creating outdoor trails and greenways throughout the state, was chosen by the Governor and is just one of many charities that benefits from SECC.
