Hometown Moments | Dairy Queen
This is a Hometown Moment! For Cloverleaf Healthcare in Brazil, IN. Joe Thomas purchased Dairy Queen in 1955. And I have attached a story from them to the email. But I also want readers to know about some things I learned about Joe from his son during an interview. Joe’s son is Jerald whom now is the current owner, tells me a little bit about his father. Before he became popular known by Dairy Queen he once played basketball as a kid for Cory High school where he and his team mates won Regionals! After graduating he decided he wanted to become a teacher, so he did. Mr. Thomas taught in Clay Community Schools for over 45 years! His son says he has taught many of our Clay County Residents. Jerald treated our Residents today with some of his fathers original tasty deserts. Our Residents and Staff were so grateful to have met and learned the history behind our hometown Dairy Queen. Make sure you stop in sometime, it’s yummy!
