(Dover, NH) - Although the weather has not fully cooperated since the official arrival of spring last month, the recent warm-up and snow-less days has brought the welcome opening of area ice cream shops, and Dover Delite has opened for the season!

I noticed a group standing in front of the Chestnut Street ice cream shop Monday afternoon.  The Bolduc family and friends said they had been waiting for the season opener, which was on Saturday, and admitted this was their second visit in 3 days.

Dover Delite owner Gail Fortin was manning the take-out window herself as she begins to add to her staff for the busy spring and summer season.

Oh, and they aIso sell lobster rolls and hot dogs! I can tell you first hand that you won't leave hungry.
