Rotarian Bill Knape gave the Squire some feedback about the story we ran recently about Rockford girls protecting a turtle nest off Bostwick Lake. He said he enjoyed the story and his family has always liked turtles. This picture shows how much turtles appreciate a raft of their own at Spring Lake. Enjoy!
