Ripon Cookie Photo Gets Quick Response

The executive director of the Ripon Area Chamber of Commerce says they got a quick response about an iconic photo from Cookie Daze history as they were preparing for this past weekend’s event. Jason Mansmith posted the photo of a freckle-faced boy on the Ripon Facebook page showing the boy enjoying himself during when the City baked and served the World’s Largest Cookie in July of 1992. He says a few hours after the photo was posted the now young man got back to him. Anthony Dart was from Fond du Lac, but now lives in Kansas City. He says they’d love to have the opportunity to recreate the photo with the now older Dart. He says it’s amazing how social networking sites can keep you connected to a community you no longer live in. Dart is now using the iconic photo for his Facebook profile picture.
