Papou Honored At Hopkins Dairy Queen

HOPKINS (AP) – There’s another unique story from the suburban Minneapolis Dairy Queen recently in the headlines for its manager’s act of kindness.

Last month, the manager at the Hopkins restaurant refused to serve a woman who took $20 from a visually impaired customer. He replaced the $20 with his own money.

The latest act of kindness comes from the family of a longtime customer who drove to Hopkins every Wednesday for ice cream. Chaska doctor, David Dragotis, grew up in Hopkins and enjoyed the memories. Dr. D, as he was known, died of cancer earlier this year.

Wednesday, his family left $200 with the Dairy Queen manager and asked him to pay for every order until the money ran out. His family also left a sign that read “Pay it Forward for Papou” which is Greek for grandfather.
