In the words of Queen Maddi, "Nothing beats our small town block parties, the AuSable River Festival, and the AuSable River Canoe Marathon. But, above all, it's the love and support that surrounds our community that truly makes it special." Her appreciation for the unique charm of their close-knit community reflects not only her regal poise but also her understanding of the importance of unity and shared experiences.
