In Jefferson, it’s all about Gemuetlichkeit. And even though an Irish guy like John couldn’t pronounce it, he sure could feel it! Who wouldn’t feel happy and welcome after walking through the renovated downtown, talking with plein air artists as they worked, visiting with Sister Grace at St. Colletta’s and eating Wedl’s hamburgers and Bon Ton’s bakery. But John had some unique experiences that really defined the feeling. He sang with five G-Day Queens, hid the Mecki, watched the goats mow the island, and saw kittens being born at the Jefferson humane society! Believe him – there’s no place else with Jefferson’s Gemuetlichkeit!
