It’s a fun radio conversation with Peter Herschend of Herschend Family Entertainment (www.hfecorp.com), owners of Silver Dollar City of Branson, MO, and 16 other very family friendly major entertainment venues in nine states. They include Dixie Stampede’s, The Branson Belle, Stone Mountain Park near Atlanta, Dollywood (in partnership with Dolly Parton) in Gatlinburg, TN, and numerous others. The Herschend Family Entertainment mission is to “Create memories worth repeating;” and its purpose is “Bringing families closer together.” Pete takes gratification in the fact that visitors can take their grandparents…or their grandchildren…to any of the Herschend properties and enjoy it without embarrassment. The Caring People (www.thecaringpeople.org), a ministry to single moms, founded by JoDee (Mrs. Peter) Herschend, is referenced. Peter Herschend was just recently inducted in the 2010 MO Sports Hall of Fame as a cyclist, having raised ¼ Million $s for the MS Society. Some laughs during the conversation are at the expense of Peter’s college roommate and longtime friend, Rev. Bill McConkey, Senior Pastor of Sutter Presbyterian Church in St. Louis, MO. Listen, laugh, and look ahead as you consider your next family friendly and fun vacation destination.
