Went to the zoo today and thought about Franklin

You’re bound to see these at the Milwaukee County Zoo:


Sponsored by Meijer


This 25-minute guided tour on an open-air tram is full of interesting Zoo facts. Tickets available at the Zoomobile Ticket Booth near the main entrance.

Runs daily, April through October (weather permitting). Check ride area for hours of operation.

Adult: $3
Child (ages 3 to 12): $2

Special thanks to our Zoomobile sponsor:



And have you noticed all the wonderful things Meijer is sponsoring, not just the Zoomobile?

That got me wondering.

Remember Meijer wanted to build its first Wisconsin store in Franklin.

Our city gave Meijer a less than warm welcome. Come to think of it, Franklin didn’t give Meijer much of any welcome, the visionaries that we are.

So Meijer went elsewhere. And elsewhere. And elsewhere.

Imagine if Meijer had built here and what they might have sponsored? Possibly a good portion or more of Kayla’s Playground. Or any number of other possibilities.

Oh well.
