Lakewood High School alumnus Mike Booi was in town Friday afternoon and brought with him a big surprise… the Stanley Cup! Booi is now the assistant athletic trainer for the Washington Capitals, who won their first NHL championship a month ago.
It is traditional for each team member and employee of the winning franchise to get a day with the trophy, and Booi could think of no better way to celebrate his turn than with his family, sharing soft serve ice cream from Dairy Queen.
Turns out, when was younger, Mike Booi’s first job was working at the Dairy Queen in Lake Odessa. So Friday afternoon he brought the cup to Dairy Queen
in Lake-O, filled it with ice cream, and shared it with his wife and their 18 month old daughter.
Definitely a summer treat to remember!
