DIGGERS CELEBRATION—Over 600 people attended the “Meet and Greet” party held in honor of National Geographic’s Diggers TV Show personalities, Tim “The Ringmaster” Saylor and George “King George” Wyant on Saturday, Oct. 11 at Badger Park in Peshtigo. The TV show filmed various locations around Peshtigo to find artifacts of the Peshtigo Fire of Oct. 8, 1871. Pictured is Joe Terry of Peshtigo holding a strong box lock from the 1800s found near his home, complete with a bullet hole.
