A little more from Michelle:

“One of my favorite spots in Manhattan is Manhattan Hill. I enjoy going there with my family and relaxing at the top by the letters, having a picnic and hiking the trails. It is a great place to see the vast majority of the city. It is especially beautiful in the fall with the changing leaves.”

“I enjoy and treasure the relationships at Meadowlark Hills. These relationships are not only the relationships that I have been fortunate enough to be a part of, but also those where I have been able to watch others grow and flourish over time. These connections and bonds are established because of a mutual respect for the foundations of Meadowlark Hills and are indeed precious. It helps to foster a lifelong desire to support and encourage each other on the smooth and bumpy roads of life.”
