Deaf Wisconsin Picnic

August 26, 2009

By Jimactor

Summary: Went to Deaf Wisconsin picnic in Darien, Wisconsin. Hosted by 4 different organizations and the picnic always have a successful one! This year was 4th annual and had over 2,500 people, how can they know how many people showed up? They give the color bracelets and that’s how they counted the people. Stayed there all day then met Tom Benziger and he begged me and my wife to come visit his home and then went to ice cream parlor. Wow!! Ice cream parlor setting and equipment is like in 1950’s environment and really enjoyed myself out there and glad did stop by before went home.

    I remember this kind of store at certain places when I was a small child. Also, remember, we had a lot of ice cream shoppes or resturants in 1970s. I do not know if it applies you…
