Not being from Lansing originally, I have learned what a gem our Capital region really is! Some of my favorite things to do with the family are visit the bald eagles at Potter Park Zoo, go fishing at Hawk Island Park and cool off at the splash pad. My favorite golf course is Hawk Hollow, although I’m up for the challenge at dozens of other courses in the area. Although golf is a big hobby, there’s nothing quite like cheering on my Spartans to victory on a cool fall day along the banks of the Red Cedar.
One of my favorite inspiring quotes is, “Be hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined”.
