Holy cow! The new owners of 22 S. Main St. in New Hope have said they plan to refurbish the structure there and re-open it as an ice cream business (it was formerly Gerenser’s Exotic Ice Cream), and now the establishment’s new name has been revealed: “Moo Hope Ice Cream.”

Owners Marlene and Larry Panzica have previously indicated that tackling the requisite renovation there is their first priority, and a quick look at the building’s superstructure and public health records reveals what most locals know already: the building needs a lot of work, and that won’t happen overnight. One South Main Street business owner expressed quiet satisfaction that renovation is already underway. “Thank goodness,” she said.

So, for those that follow such things (and we do), the questions remaining are: When will New Hope’s mooest ice cream shop open, and what other menu items might be offered? Stay tuned.

  • Under Search News on the upper right of this home page type in New Hope Solebury Facilities Committee wherein you will see a video of me sparing with the head of the committee, Jonathan Adar. He states at the end of the video that the district is in DIRE need of a Large Group Instructional Space. To do this, Adar reasons, the district will use the present middle school gym. Move the MS kids to the HS gym and build a $11-14 million dollar gym for the HS kids.These numbers were mentioned by Kevin Godshall the architect for the project right after the video was taken. Now The one question that Mr. Adar and the administration WILL NOT ANSWER nor dare to answer is this. What activities can be ADEQUATELY accomplished in the MS gym that can not ADEQUATELY be accomplished in the OTHER large Group Instructional Spaces such as the HS auditorium, the HS library and the lunchrooms during non lunchroom hours. It should be noted that Mr. Adar has cancelled the last two facilities committee meetings. I wonder why?
