Susan Lackey comes home to Chelsea.
One December day when Susan Lackey was about ten, she took a ride with her father, a farmer in western Michigan. As they passed a sign that read “Under it all is the land,” her father turned to her and said, “Don’t ever forget that. Life is all about the land.”
And she never has. “My career has been devoted to helping communities be the kind of places where people want to live, work, and play,” she says. That career ends June 30, and already a new chapter of her life is beginning to unfold.
