Fox Lake/Grant Township Historical Association Meeting: Ingleside's Don 'N Suds

The meeting was at 9:30 a.m. Saturday.  Almost didn't make it to this.  I woke up at 4:30 a.m. This morning and couldn't get back to sleep, but did get back to sleep at 7:30, but woke up at 10 (the meeting began at 9:30).  Dressed rapidly and drove to Ingleside (they raised gas in Fox Lake from $2.18 o $2.38 yesterday).  I then got stuck my a malfunctioning railroad crossing gate and had to back track.

But I finally got there.

Roy Miller, who owns the Ingleside Dog 'N Suds was giving a presentation on his place.  His parents bought it and opened in 1967, so this is the 50th anniversary  of family ownership.  At one time there were several hundred Dog 'N Suds, but now just seven.  And, we have three of them right here in the LakeCounty/McHenry County area:  Ingleside, Grayslake and Richmond.
