Around The Corner with John McGivern: Grafton

About This Episode


In the talent category, Grafton has it covered with the artists and businesses at The Arts Mill, and the incredible band, Life in a Tree. In the Make-a-Difference category, you’re not going to find better representatives than Mel’s Charities and Josh Davis-Joiner’s friends. In the personality category, banjo player Mike Gregory and Christmas tree farmers Lisa and Rick O’Malley were too much fun. And on the Around the Corner judging sheets, there’s also the best tasting category - of course - which was well satisfied by Lake Winds Elk Farm (elk sticks…delicious!), Slow Poke Local Foods (kiefer - who knew?) and Atlas BBQ (yum!).

We could never choose one community as Miss Wisconsin because there are too many worthy contestants (and because we’re not stupid, thank you very much), but for Miss Congeniality of Season 6, we have a winner! And Grafton, it’s you! Congratulations!

Around the Corner with John McGivern shows you all the rich and vibrant history of Wisconsin through its diverse neighborhoods. Hear local stories as old as the state itself then see up-and-coming small businesses. Join John McGivern as he explores living, working and playing in these one of a kind communities.
