Three quirky facts about Griffin

Our mayor has a very Griffin send-off

Did you just hear someone call out “Have a great Griffin day”? Lucky you! You just ran across our town’s mayor.

Our newspaper keeps it personal

Our local paper, the Griffin Daily News, is the best source for Griffin news and events. That may not seem like anything special, but our paper is different. 

Every day, our newspaper’s publisher dedicates the local paper to one of our amazing town folks. Our people are the heart of Griffin. This is just one small way that we acknowledge how great they are. Be sure to check the paper for today’s special dedication!

How can insurance be fun? Ask around town and you’ll find we have our very own “Jake from State Farm.” Yes, you can recreate the famous commercial right here in Griffin. Though maybe don’t actually call him at 3 a.m.  

Our town is full of fun little quirks (though we prefer to call them extra charm). Have you been to Griffin lately? What were your favorite charming moments?
