The Dr Pepper Museum was in for a little treat Monday afternoon when retired middle school counselor Dorothy Jud DeVries came for a visit with her granddaughter and great-granddaughter. On June 8, 2012, this Riesel native will turn 90 years-old and she still remembers the time she spent at her favorite soda fountain.

As a young girl in the 1930s, DeVries would frequently visit the Riesel drug store near her home. She spent her days at the soda fountain and was in for a nice surprise when she found that very soda fountain still in working condition right here at our museum. The fountain brought back memories from her childhood that she shared with some of our museum staff.

So come create some of your own memories at the soda fountain by visiting the museum today!
