The spirit of collaboration was in the air Feb. 15 when two dozen local leaders came together for a Community Roundtable.
The 90-minute session was organized by the Frankenmuth Community Foundation and included representatives from a wide range of civic groups, governmental units, festivals, schools and charitable organizations. The gathering was held at the Bavarian Inn Restaurant.
It had been a rough week for Lyndsey Piesko: Recovery was slow after coaching a weekend volleyball tournament. Then bronchitis and pneumonia hit.
After eight years suffering from an autoimmune illness and chronic pain, Lyndsey always feared she might die alone. But that cold afternoon, her parents, Gary and Cyndi, were there to drive her to the hospital.

Karen Zehnder is a believer.
“Frankenmuth is a very generous community. Residents and businesses alike make donations to important causes through credible agencies – and the Frankenmuth Community Foundation is one of those agencies,” said Zehnder, who served on the Foundation’s Board of Governors from 2005 to 2013.
