Elsie Bennett Hopes to Spark Joy, Community Feeling with New Cleveland Ice Cream Parlor and Store
From the Salisbury Post

CLEVELAND — Elsie Bennett is a firm believer in ice cream’s power to bring people together.
“It’s joyful, it’s happy and it’s delicious,” Bennett said.
That’s why, when she was approached a few months ago with the idea of opening a shop in downtown Cleveland, Bennett decided to center the store around the frozen treat.
In the few weeks that followed, Bennett and a dedicated group of helpers transformed the formerly vacant storefront at 103 W. Main St. into what is now Elsie’s Ice Cream Parlor and General Store.
