What is your favorite location, place, building, or spot in Royalton? Why?

Right here on the river.  When we were kids we used to play soccer, dodgeball, baseball—this is where we all congregated every day.

What do you think makes Royalton unique or different from other places you have lived or visited?

I think it's just the community.  The feeling of knowing everyone and they all know you.  Felling safe here.

What is the most challenging aspect of life in a small Vermont town like Royalton?

The same thing—everyone knowing you and knowing your business....pretty much that's it. Everyone knowing everyone is a good thing, but sometimes not a good thing growing up as a teenager.

What Royalton resident made a positive difference in your life?

There are so many. I don't know if I can point out just one.  There's so many people here that when I group up, all the business owners, we knew them all, they all knew you...there's just so many of them.

What do you want people to know about your town?

Just how beautiful it is here and they should come to visit.

What is your wish for your life? What is a wish for your town?

Ya, that it keeps the uniqueness and quaintness even through the technological age. I want to keep it safe, healthy and happy.
