Ice cream truck makes its rounds

ALBION – I’ve wanted to get a picture of the ice cream truck for years, but never seemed to have time or a camera on me. I was out for a jog this afternoon with my Smart Phone when I heard the truck’s familiar bells.

Bernie Wheater, owner of Scoop’s Ice Cream, pulled right in front of me on Densmore Street and a family soon descended for a frozen treat.

Wheater bought the business from a Holley resident about six years ago. Wheater covers a big territory west of Route 259. He is often in Orleans County, including about three trips a week to Albion.
