I didn’t grow up here but I did. I’ve lived in this town now for 35 years. You can’t live anywhere that long without growing up a little bit.
There are close to 7,000 people in this town, up 3,000 since I first moved here. I would dare to say about half of the people I know, know of, or they know of me.
I’ve raised three children here and divorced two husbands. I’ve been a Girl Scout leader, involved with the little league, volunteered at the schools and cheered on our sports teams.
This is Strasburg.
This is home.
