Local library has events a few times a month...mostly for children which this town supports more than the elderly. All our tax money goes to schools..nothing for Seniors!

Have party for kids on Halloween every year and some festivities during the summer but nothing really that is for seniors.

It has a lot of things to offer for people of all ages...a town field and pool with bb courts, a senior center and a town recreation department that has events for all ages

No not age friendly at all. Nothing for Seniors, no community center, no activities, no services, nothing.

This town is not Age Friendly. They don't even have a Seniors Club or anything for Senior. Taxes are outrageous and you have to be almost broke before you get a break and even then you can't afford them.
