Attendees were invited to tour and enjoy the zoo after the seminar. Guest speakers from the Milwaukee County Zoo included Shawn Miller, Zoo Keeper-Food Specialist who correlated food service operations, nutritional needs and complexities involved in feeding zoo animals and Andrew Stockel, Concession and Merchandise Coordinator who outlined methods utilized to create successful self-operated zoo food venues followed by a tour of the Zoo's Flamingo Café.

The attendees later enjoyed lunch prepared by the catering staff. Zoo Keeper and Concession Coordinator with one of three tour groups are shown below.

Christopher Gentine, Master Cheese Maker and Founder of the Artesian Cheese Exchange shared his creation of a tasty and nutritious lactose free cheese brand name/label: Apollo's Gift.

Following a question and answer session Jean Wroblewski, President (right) and Diane Clarke, Co-Chair Fall Seminar Committee (left) surprised Randy Sparrow (center) with a large bag of Laura's Gourmet flavored popcorn as a token of appreciation. Popcorn is a favorite and has special significance in his past. Be sure to ask him share that information with you.
