Ice cream scoop of the day: The Madville Times goes rumor-hunting today and hears a secondhand report that a generous and hungry individual donated $150,000 to the Dell Rapids Dairy Queen to buy 50,000 Blizzards on Miracle Treat Day. I check the Dell Rapids DQ Facebook page and find they are reporting 52,528 Blizzards sold. That figure would set the record for one-day charity Blizzard sales, topping even Madison's momentous 21,405 Blizzards sold to benefit the Children's Miracle Network.
What is the proper response to the Dell Rapids store's success? Three hearty cheers for the fact that local competition could spur one individual to that spectacular generosity. Good work, neighbors!
Now, let's figure out who the donor is! Commenters, start your investigative engines!
