A love for shaved ice led Newcastle’s Myra Gunnink to opening Myra’s Shaved Ice. This year marks her third summer selling shaved ice and other goodies to people making their way through downtown Newcastle. She also travels to different events in the area.
“It’s kind of my retirement. As I retire, it will give me something to do during the summer,” said Gunnink, who travels to different events throughout the area, as well as offering lunch specials with the help of her grandson during the week. The location of her trailer may vary but odds are people can find her parked outside of Little One’s Daycare.
