I accepted the invitation because I want to be more involved in how Lunenburg County takes shape in the future. One thing I hear people my age say is "What do young people do for fun in Lunenburg County?” “They leave.”
I think that's unfortunate. I'd like to see Lunenburg County be a place where more young people want to stay. At the same time, I understand the challenges and reasons that influence why many leave.
I was born and raised in the area and I see the great things it already has to offer, as well as its potential. Since moving back home about three months ago, I've been looking for ways to get involved in the community outside of work, and I figure this will be a great opportunity.
