Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim July 1984 as National Ice Cream Month and July 15, 1984, as National Ice Cream Day,” he stated in Proclamation 5219.

“I call upon the people of the United States to observe these events with appropriate ceremonies and activities.

Who are we to say no?
