Windsor Mayor James Hoggard’s mother could not keep him out of the water when he was a boy.

“Within two minutes I can be in an area where there are no people,” Hoggard said.

I'm so happy I've never sold

I'm so happy I've never sold my lakeside home, I can still do all these things all year round! I love living so close to water, in fact I plan to have a new boat lift. Any of the ones I've seen on https://lunmarboatlifts.com/ would be great for my boat, so I can't wait to get started!
