Skowhegan ice cream maker Gifford's has gone to the Washington, D.C. area to promote their ice cream and to try and get it in stores in the Mid-Atlantic states, including Whole Foods.

As part of their splash for excitement, Gifford's has an ice cream truck touring DC, Maryland and Virginia giving out free samples. On Monday July 21, Senators Susan Collins and Angus King held an ice cream social at Capitol Hill to help as well.

Good luck to Lindsay Gifford-Skilling and the whole Gifford's team! Go Gifford's!
