Dear Fleetwood Family, we extend our hearts to your family. As relatively "recent plants" to Brown County, it doesn't take long to understand that there is a root system of families in BC that laid the groundwork for much of what we experience. We know that "Fleetwood" represents a quality of life passed down from precious, rugged, and diligent beginnings. We hold you Jerry and all of your family in the compassionate light of love.
