Where is your favorite place in Bonner County? Why? I love the town itself in the summer. Our almost daily routine for my husband and I was to put our girls in the bike trailer after work and head to City Beach. I loved riding back over the bridge into town, my family on the bike in front of me, seeing everyone in their summer clothes walking around eating their ice cream. In that moment, the same thought would always go through my mind: We are so lucky to live in a place where everyone else comes to vacation.
What has gone unnoticed that Sandpoint should be recognized for? I don’t know that it’s gone unnoticed, but I have been impressed with how the people in this area rally to fundraise for their needs.

What are some great challenges facing Sandpoint and Bonner County? While volunteering at the PAFE Gala this summer I heard the speakers describe the issue of trying to combat the troubles many teens have related to the negative things being said about them on social media by their peers. They linked this to them having trouble succeeding in school, depression and even suicide, which has unfortunately been too common. It’s good to see the support given to groups who fund so much through grants and scholarships and this seems to be a definite need.

What do you wish Sandpoint had that it doesn’t? I’m so in awe of this area so far that I can’t think of much that it doesn’t have. As someone who is actively trying to find out more about this area, it would be nice if there were more information online. Any advice for newcomers? I would recommend talking to people about whatever you are interested in because Sandpoint has an organization or opportunity for everything. Join groups, sign up for charity races, walk into town and listen to some live music. Do whatever you enjoy and likely the nice local next to you will turn out to be a new friend.
