Our Community 


Family comes in many forms, but at the heart of family is the community in which we live and serve. Community doesn't just represent a group of people living in the same place. It's a feeling of fellowship with others, it is a sharing of common interests, attitudes and goals.


Dr. Ranttila is proud to serve her community in many ways through leadership, participation, donation and support.
