Ashley Reviews

1 review
Ashley is a very small German community that is very welcoming. The people in Ashley are very caring and respectful, they watch over one another like they are all related. The community is very traditional, religious, and proud. At the schools they still say the pledge of allegiance every morning before class starts, they are extremely proud of how well their children learn in school and how they learn in the field or on a wrestling mat. The people of Ashley all work together to make this a safe but fun town. If one person is hurting or needing help everyone will do something for that person to make their pain or hardship easier to handle. I rate this town with 5 stars because this is where I call home and my neighbors are who I call my family. And your home and family are most important in life.
