Residents of Cloquet’s Sunnyside Health Care Center made their annual summer trip across Highway 33 to Gordy’s Hi-Hat for ice cream Thursday, Aug. 22.

The Cloquet Police Department stopped traffic for about 35 residents, accompanied by Sunnyside staff and volunteers, to make their way across the four lane highway to Gordy’s to get a sweet treat to chase away the heat and humidity.

Cloquet Community Memorial Hospital CEO Rick Breuer said the residents have made the trek to Gordy’s for the last 20 years and only once has it been canceled because of bad weather. The one year event was rained out, the staff at Gordy's delivered ice cream to Sunnyside, Breuer said.
