Our son (Aaron was born 1994) & raised in this Home.

Aaron while a Boy Scout organized the dismantling & removal of the 13 ton collapsed water tower in Sanctuary Woods for his Eagle project.

Kim Edgel (when son Aaron was born) installed the first traffic lights on the big S curve on Maksaba Trail, near the home. He did this to keep down noise so the baby could sleep as prior to this, cars would honk their horns when approaching the curve.
