Students from Fir Grove Elementary School took turns Friday walking to Pete’s Drive-In to get ice cream with their classroom.
It’s been an ongoing tradition between the school and the business, whose owner, Darrell Orth, was a student at Fir Grove.
“Some of the best days of my life were at that school,” Orth said. “Sometimes, the little things are the things you remember. I want to help them have good memories.”
First grader Lexi Andrews recently moved to Roseburg and said she’d only ever eaten ice cream in California. After just a few licks, she determined the chocolate ice cream was better than any ice cream she’d had before.
Damien Duck said the chocolate-vanilla swirl cone was “really, really hundred double delicious.”
