We Just Do What We Do…

We Just Do What We Do…

For over a month the group, Forward Rhinelander conducted a poll to find the, “BEST OF” Rhinelander.  There were 33 categories the public could vote on.  Well, those results were tabulated and at a gathering Wednesday night the winners were announced.  First off, I want to say how proud and humbled I am to be chosen as the, “Best Media Personality“.  It means so much to be recognized for just doing what we do.  I’m equally proud to work so close (as all of us here at WHDG are) with the Hodag Country Festival, voted, “Best Annual Event“.  Congrats to the family and the thousands of fans that join us every year!
