Erin: “I grew up in Ashby and so did my Dad. On the first farm, right outside of town as you head towards Pelican Lake and I’ve loved this town my whole life. I went to the cities, I did my training in Medical Education but the first chance I had, I came back here to Ashby to live and to raise my family and have my career and I have not regretted it one minute since.
Our town is amazing at coming together when people are in need or just when somebody is celebrating. We enjoy each other, we enjoy our town and we love to celebrate it. There’s so much opportunity to build a new house or buy an older house and fix it up. You can work here in town and make a real impact right in this community, or you can choose to work in Fergus or Alex.
There’s so many opportunities for employment in those larger, rural cities that are just a short 20 to 30 minute drive away and that drive is nice. Up here, 20 miles is 20 minutes and it’s through fields and hills, prairies, wetlands and lakes. You get all four seasons, all the classic changes and you get that just on your drive to and from work in the morning. It’s actually a pretty enjoyable part of my day.
For a small community of only 400, 500 people, we have a lot of amenities here. Not only do we have the Central Lakes Trail, which allows you to bike and run and hike and enjoy the outdoors, right on the edge of town. But, we also have a great K-12 public school. We have an assisted living center and we have a clinic in town. So, through all stages of life, we have things to support you and to allow you to live the best life you can live. Right here in Ashby.”
