 JULY. ISSUE 81. 2019
Marcels Culinary Experience
July is finally here and summer is in full swing, with 4th of July festivities around town and more exciting events happening all month long in the store. Be sure you don't miss out - read about all of our fun activities and events below.
 
Jazz Up Glen Ellyn is back with live music and outdoor frolicking. This is sure to be an event you won't want to miss! The following weekend, join us again out on the street and sidewalk for the annual Glen Ellyn Sidewalk Sale with four days of deals, deals, and more deals. Then, we round out the month with our Meet Me at Marcel's: Neighborhood Happy Hour. It's a time to gather, catch up with friends and cool off with a frozen treat or two. 
 
Our kitchen is busy with fun classes all month long. With some demonstration classes designed to be short, sweet and filled with delicious chef-made dinners to an afternoon of frozen delights with our special guest chef, these classes bring good food while teaching some new techniques. 
 
The heat may be rising outside but we're staying cool inside Marcel's. Stop in, say hello. We always love seeing our friends and hearing all the wonderful things going on in your lives!
