History of Heywood’s Ice Cream 

 Joel Heywood will talk about the History of Heywood’s Ice Cream.  Joel is the grandson of the man who owned and operated one of the most nostalgically loved businesses in San Bernardino from 1928 until October of 1994.  Our speaker will talk about how this unique ice cream parlor came to be as well as the non- ice cream “specialties” ---such as a hobby shop and model airplanes.
