Supporting children’s miracles, one blizzard at a time
Owner of Dairy Queen (DQ) Cornwall, Nolan Quinn, anticipated that 2,500 local customers would show their support during the annual DQ Miracle Treat Day across North America on Thursday, Aug. 8. Seeing a five-times jump from the usual 500 blizzards sold on an average summer day, Quinn said that the annual event receives a lot of support from community partners, like Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cornwall and District who were on site, as well as members of the public. “CHEO is very important. It serves a lot of people in Cornwall and SDG. Obviously with children being our future, it’s a very easy ask for customers. Not only are we fundraising today but we do it year-round,” said Quinn. “It’s not hard to find motivation when you see one sick child. It’s pretty easy to want to jump on board and do more.” From left, Owner of Dairy Queen Cornwall Nolan Quinn, Alex Tourangeau representing CHEO, enjoying holding a frozen upside-down blizzard and Evan Burelle, volunteer and DQ staff member.

A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning. The wife said, “You should do it because you get up first, and then we don’t have to wait as long to get our coffee. The husband said, “You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee.” Wife replies, “No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee.” Husband replies, “I can’t believe that, show me.” So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages that it indeed says... “HEBREWS”
