Well, plain and simple, I love P-town. I was an army brat who moved 18 times before my 18th birthday. I did spend 4 years of my middle and high school life in Portage and even managed to land a picture (basketball) on Portage Central's hall of fame, but in truth I had never lived anywhere long enough to really have it feel like "home" until Kathy, Alex, Lauren, and I moved to Parchment in 1997. At the time Lauren was a 10th grader, Alex was a 5th grader, Kathy was teaching, and Kathy and I both were coaching the freshman girls basketball team. The community just took us under their wing and in appreciation I've put these pages together in the hopes that I'm giving a little something back to the community that I like to call "home".
If you enjoy these pages please drop me a note at<firstname.lastname@example.org>.

NOTE: I try very hard to make sure that all the pictures that appear on this web site are positive in nature. The goal of this web site is to portray the Parchment community in a positive light. That said, if you do not want to appear on this web site for "any" reason just say the word and I will happily and quickly remove any pictures of you that have been placed on this web site. In other words, I don't want anyone on this web site who doesn't want to be on this web site.
