Ranae Johnston scoops cookie dough into a Blizzard on Thursday at Dairy Queen in Mitchell during the ninth annual Dairy Queen Miracle Treat Day. Participating locations donate $1 from each of the day’s Blizzard sales to the Children’s Miracle Network. Allan Catellier, general manager of the Mitchell Dairy Queen, said the store’s goal this year was to sell 3,500 Blizzards. As of 9 p.m. Thursday, the store had sold 1,800 Blizzards, and sales were still going strong. Last year, the local store sold a total of 1,700 Blizzards. (Sean Ryan/Republic)
