FAVORITE PLACE IN THREE RIVERS PARK DISTRICT
Beard said Eagle Lake Regional Park in Plymouth/Maple Grove is her favorite in the Three Rivers system, explaining that a milestone birthday prompted her interest in learning to golf. “My instructor was very patient and focused on building confidence as well as skills,” she said. “He taught us as much about the etiquette and tradition of the sport as he did about how to swing the clubs and keep score. I learned a life-long skill.”
Marge’s term expires December 31, 2020.
