MIDTOWN ICE CREAM SOCIAL ... Sunday, Sept. 15, is the date for this year's Midtown Residents Association Ice Cream Social. The annual event takes place at Hoover Park on Cowper Street between 1 and 4 p.m. and includes a book giveaway, ice cream, chili served up by Palo Alto firefighters, snacks and popcorn. The social will have "the scoop" on emergency preparedness, information tables from local service groups, face painting, sand art and children's activities. A fire truck will be on hand. New this year: Midtown businesses the School of Rock, United Studios of Self Defense and Uber Eyes will provide entertainment. At the Diversity Table, residents can share their heritage on a World Heritage map and play the Guess the Culture game to win a prize. Officials from the Palo Alto City Council and Palo Alto Board of Education are expected to attend.
