Producer Raul Galvan tells his family's personal story relating to the COVID-19 vaccine. It's a story of two-generations - his daughter is a nurse practitioner in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Children's Wisconsin. She received the vaccine. Raul's 91-year-old mother lives at the St. Camillus life plan community in Wauwatosa and is anxiously awaiting her vaccine.
Also, 10THIRTYSIX presents an update on Edumakono Zetho, the former Congolese refugee whose story it's followed for the past two years. Plus - in a segment produced in partnership with PBS Frontline - meet some of Wisconsin's next-generation dairy farmers who just might save America's Dairyland with their approach to farming and technology.
Around the Corner - Green Bay
You don't have to be a Green Bay Packer fan to be a fan of Green Bay. After all, the Packers aren't the only great attraction in this city. But then again, let's face it: true Wisconsinites LOVE their green and gold! In the fanaticism that exists around the Packers, John had a blast with people who live, work AND play, all because of the Packers. But if you're a parent or grandparent, it's possible that you're an even bigger fan of Bay Beach. Young children certainly are giant fans of this one-of-a-kind amusement park. In Titletown, there's great food, great history and great atmosphere. There's a really great event series on the City Deck called Dine on the Deck event every Wednesday in the summer. And there are great employers, like Green Bay Packaging and Schneider Trucking. It was really easy for John to become a great fan of Green Bay --- and he's a fan of all of it, not just of the Packers. But just so you know, he did perfect the cheer. Go Pack Go!
