“When I went to college in the cities, I lost all feeling of community. When I graduated, I knew I needed to get back home to a community that I trusted. Ladysmith is a town where you can bring your car in to Flambeau Auto or Jerry’s and not be worried about them taking advantage of your lack of car knowledge. You can go out to eat at Family Restaurant and the owner and all the waitresses know you by name, or walk into Cedar Lodge and have your favorite drink already set out for you. Being able to graduate college, move back to such a welcoming community that I trust, surrounded by family, while having a great job right out of college? That’s a no-brainer!”
