Wiki Wednesday #7

16 05 2007

Yup, it’s time for this week’s installment.

1.) Go to Wikipedia.
2.) Click on “Random article.”
3.) Report on the outcome.

Here’s this week’s exciting result:

Maple Grove, Shawano County, Wisconsin

Maple Grove is a town in Shawano County, Wisconsin, United States. The population was 1,045 at the 2000 census.

Yes, that’s two weeks in a row that my Wiki Wednesday is an American locale that I don’t know. I’ve been to Wisconsin—to Milwaukee and in a line roughly between Chicago and Fargo, North Dakota. Never, though, have I been to northeastern Wisconsin. I gather that Shawano is an Ojibwa word, and that’s certainly cool. It’s also cool that the average income in Maple Grove is $45,000+. That seems like quite a bit for what’s apparently a pretty darn rural area.

Who’s been to Maple Grove?
