Ice Cream & Saving Lives
WRITTEN BY Nils Mowlem
Blayne Midthun of Ramone's Ice Cream Parlor and Jeff Dykes of Northern Star Fire LLC spoke to a packed 1MC audience which included kids from Blugold Beginnings. Blayne and his wife wanted to create a 1920s style ice cream parlor named after Blayne's father Ramone, who contributed greatly to the Eau Claire community. They hope to give their customers an ice cream experience only found in Eau Claire and nowhere else.
Jeff Dykes hopes his Northern Star Fire compass will revolutionize safety for firefighters around the world and is currently seeking a goal of $500,000 from investors.
These success stories continue to be an inspiration for Eau Claire natives and there's many more to come!
