In 2014, we became the Franchisees for Fisher’s Foodland, and we are so very happy to be a part of this community: as a family, as volunteers and as local business owners. Currently, I am a volunteer at our children’s school and also sit as a board member for the Children’s Foundation as well as Rebound Child & Youth Services.
