Have you ever wondered who the people behind Living Fort Wayne were? Or maybe you’re curious about the different things our team does every day that make Living Fort Wayne the go-to destination for all the great things happening in our city. In this new spotlight series, we’ll be featuring a few of our amazing volunteers who will share a bit about their contributions to Living Fort Wayne and what they do outside of their volunteer work with us.
First up is our Editorial Chair, Lynn Altevogt:
What is your role within LFW and why did you decide to volunteer for our blog?
I am the Editorial Chair for LFW. I originally joined Living Fort Wayne as a writer but I loved it so much I just kept doing more!
Tell us one thing about your life outside of LFW. (Job, Family, pets, hobbies, etc).
I have a dog named Liddy. She is (allegedly) half Pointer, half American Bulldog. Whatever breed she is, she’s both extremely agile and quite sassy. I have a 6-foot-tall wooden fence around my backyard and she can climb it in about one bound.
If you could live any other place in the world, beside FW, where would you live and why?
My pie-in-the-sky pick would be Italy. Assisi to be more precise. I went on an art history trip to several cities in Italy when I was in college and I absolutely want to return. It is so beautiful and rich with culture. Assisi is a very unique city – it’s hard to explain. It’s just one of those places you read about but never expect to be as amazing in real life. It is.
If I’m being realistic and I had to pick somewhere to actually live other than Fort Wayne, I think I would be happy in Indianapolis. My brother and sister-in-law live there and they have some really cool spots. Plus, I’d really dig running on the Monon Trail every day!
If you had a friend coming in from out of town, what is the one ‘can’t miss’ thing you would show them or do with them in FW?
Ok, this is totally cheating, but when my cousins and I were kids, every time they’d come to town we’d go to Science Central, the Zoo, and the Botanical Gardens. They would demand it every trip and we would be psyched to go. Every. Single. Time. Honestly, I still get psyched about all three of those places no matter how many times I’ve been!
If you were going to karaoke tonight, what song would you sing?
Probably something by The Spice Girls. Yep, definitely Spice Girls. Go ahead and queue up “Wannabe.”
Stay tuned next month for another glimpse into one of Living Fort Wayne’s volunteers. If you’d like to learn more about opportunities to help out with our blog, send us an email (email@example.com) or reach out to us on Social Media:
