We are a moderately sized town not too big but also not too small. I love that everyone is close to one another and our community loves to help one another! Everything such as stores and food are conveniently located closely to one another. The town itself is easy to navigate as there are not too many side streets to get lost and confused on. Our main park often holds allot of events such as car shows, pottery, read aloud's, concerts etc for all ages to enjoy. There are plenty of housing and plenty of job opportunities.
