MHS Boosters Will Inherit Ice Cream House
Marblehead High School's All Sports Boosters will inherit the materials from the Ice Cream House recently constructed for Grown Ups 2 at Gatchell's Park.
The mystery of whether or not the Grown Ups 2 Ice Cream House at Gatchell Park will be put to good use after filming wraps has been solved - Marblehead High School's All Sports Boosters will be inheriting the materials it is made out of.
Boosters co-President Tricia Rockett was happy to report Friday evening that Columbia Pictures has agreed to donate the stand materials to the boosters after shooting at the park wraps tonight.
On Tuesday, Recreation and Parks Commission members dismissed the notion of the town wanting to keep the ice cream stand because it only appears to be sturdy and lacks the solid foundation, electricity and running water it would need to serve as a permanent snack booth.
In spite of the stand's non-compliant specs, Rockett said her husband, T. Michael Rockett, and local real estate agent Jack Attridge recently approached Columbia Pictures about having the stand donated to the boosters.
The film's producer, she said, was quick to offer up the set as a donation. The material is expected to be used to build a new stand from which the boosters can sell snacks to fans at Marblehead High School varsity football games and other events.
"It's terrific, they were very accommodating," Tricia Rockett said. "We're all very excited."
The boosters are in the process of putting together a committee to help get the stand ready for the fall. Residents interested in joining up are encouraged to contact the All Sports Boosters.
