Anne and Justin Taylor

Rumor has it you were in Bluffton recently. Did you get to take a plane ride with your brother, Kevin?

Yes, I did actually! Kevin took my mom and me up for an hour flight around Bluffton and Lima. It was smooth and we even did a touch and go in Lima. We flew over the Lima Prison, the Mall, the Allen County Fair, the reservoir and Suter's corn maze. It was so fun!

How has the town changed since your childhood days? What do you miss?
