When did your family move to Bezanson?
Wow, 13 years ago, 2007!! Time flies! What an awesome community.
What does living in Bezanson mean to you?
Community, some of our now closest friends are Bezansonites, amazing school for our children, closer to Faye’s parents farm near Eaglesham. We hope that Dakota & Kaitlyn raise their family here as well. We’ve said this numerous times, being new people to Bezanson, there is something special here, hard to see if you’re from the area but very clear if you’re an import.
