Three Lakes wins "Single Best Town" contest

THREE LAKES (WAOW) -- The great state of Wisconsin is known for its cheese so it only makes sense that KRAFT Singles crowned one of our very own northwoods towns the "single best" in America.

The community of Three Lakes is proud to say they truly are the single best town in America.

It's all because one resident decided to write a letter describing the people who live here.

Jane McCabe sent a letter and then rallied her town to join in and vote.

She even stopped by the local coffee shop encouraging residents to vote on her laptop.

To celebrate the win KRAFT Singles threw a block party congratulating the community that bonded together to show their true colors.

Janet McCabe, a Three Lakes resident says, "It's just such a close knit community and everyone here is so friendly. It's just impossible to take a trip to the post office and not stop and say hi to everyone."

Three lakes beat out 9 other towns winning more than one-third of the total 20,000 votes.

For years to come, this day in August will mark the official, "single best town" it's been designated by Governor Jim Doyle.
