Very age friendly. Many facilities in the town geared to elderly care. I would prefer my present job not contacted while still employed at this time. I can provide other contacts if considered for a position.

The education system is one that bothers me, I don't like the fact that the classes are the sizes that they are. With the system being the way that it is there is really nothing that can be done about it. The teachers are really over worked and under paid.
