“Serving on the Lindsay Board reminds me that I am part of something bigger. The natural world is a gift that I cherish not only for its beauty but also because it humbles me. My everyday problems fade when I contribute to a balanced, harmonious existence with the critters and life that share our world. I enjoy creating a better Lindsay for the community to experience and love.”
