Our scholarship fund honors the late Dick Warren, long time NEICRA member and Past President. Dick was known to all in the ice cream world as the longterm owner of the famous Four Seas Ice Cream in Centerville, MA, and as a teacher, advisor, author, mentor, and most of all, a friend to all of us. As a guidance counsoler and teacher at Barnstable High School for many years, Dick had a special affection for the youngsters who worked at Four Seas and helped to make it into a national ice cream icon.

Each year at our annual Fall Meeting and Convention, we present scholarships to employees of our member shops. As a shop owner, this is a wonderful benefit to help you attract the cream of the crop to work in your store!
