Over a hundred years ago, a few determined men and women came here with little more than their names. Their hard work and determination prepared the way for generations to come and are the foundation on which the way of life we enjoy today is based. In every generation there are heroes who further the vision of those early pioneers-heroes like Gary Lawrence.
