Some of the happy participants on Saturday include: Janet Green, Colin Green, Lisa Carr, Scott Carr and Jon Green Saturday, May 20th found close to 140 ice cream lovers and celebrants in the Hall of Philosophy. Sponsored by Jigger Shop owners, Drew and Linda Allwein, attendees were treated to what may become a new feature at the Jigger Shop. A variation of the Jigger: a waffle cone edged with marshmallow dipped in jigger nuts holding ice cream covered with chocolate or butterscotch topping. Many smiles were seen on the faces of attendees enjoying this treat. Chuck Allwein gave us a short history of the Jigger Shop. Thanks to Robin May for organizing this event and providing the Victorian displays.
