40th anniversary of the slurpee

By D. Hargrove - ORANGE COUNTY, FL and L. Tolliver - WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY - Some trivia...Today is the 40th anniversary of the slurpee, first sold in 7-Elevens across the USA in July 1965. Family nights at Casino Pool in Freeport, NY always included slurpees back in the 60's.
