I moved here 5 months ago from the south suburbs of Chicago. I did not know a single soul here....but have met/made so many friends since being here. Many of the individuals I have met are retired and work part-time. The more I find out about my community, the more I realize I made the right decision moving here!

Most of my neighbors are all pretty much in the same age group and we help each other out. This is not an over 50+ community but has just worked out that way but there are also many families with children.t
