A cool building, tasty ice cream and good work brought 75 Iowans together on August 24th for the second annual Friends House Ice Cream Social in Des Moines. This year's gathering featured this video about the work of the tenants of the building as well as tours of Friends House, home to AFSC's Central Regional office since 1953.
