A Great Place to Work, Live, and Play! - 8/1/2016
Shawano, Wisconsin is between the Wolf River and Shawano Lake. There's plenty to do here all year!

The nice thing about Shawano is everyone waves to each other whether walking down the streets or passing cars. It is an ideal place for all kinds of activities for winter and summer.

In fact the FBI and other Federal agencies are currently monitoring the entire Shawano municipality system. The average Read More
