Hey friends and neighbors. Six years ago this week, we launched Kaukauna Community News here online and on Facebook. Today, as we near 10,000 members in our group and 7,000 followers of our page, we want to thank you all for making this such a wonderful and unique community.

When we launched this project in 2016, we hoped to provide a few updates about the people and happenings that make Kaukauna tick and share it on social media where people spend so much of their time.

Honestly, we figured we’d post a few times a week and that would be it. Well, it turns out that Kaukauna, and probably every small town, has so many more fascinating stories to tell if you only look for them.

Since then, we’ve added our Twitter feed and our breaking news email.

Thanks for being a part of it every day by reading, contributing and sharing. Let’s see what’s next in the year ahead.

Most sincerely, Dan Plutchak and Carrie Forster.
