People who came to Ranison when they were little are now bringing their children and grandchildren in for a treat. This is a regular occurrence with alumni. When they come back to visit they stop in and get the treats they loved as kids. Some people make Ranison part of their personal tradition. This was the case with a local track and field stand out. Joanna Schultz, a student at Holmen High School, made the annual trip to Ranison with her stepfather after the WIAA State Track and Field Championships. It started as a freshman when she won her first 200 and 400-meter dashes at the state meet. After the meet they took the short drive to Ranison where she celebrated with her favorite, blue moon ice cream. That tradition continued all four years of her high school track and field career right up to her record eighth straight state title. Many other traditions have brought people to Ranison. Birthdays, anniversaries, and reunions are among the popular. Even a marriage proposal has taken place over milkshakes at Ranison.
