    My parents have lived in this area since they were born and have no desire to leave. Many people have the same tendency because the sense of community is great. With a smaller town, most individuals know each other and would be glad to help each other out in time of need. There are many community events such as festivals and fundraisers.

    Police are very active in the community. With such a small population, the officers react fast and prepared for most all situations. I feel very safe in this area. There is a minimal amount of crime, of course there is crime everywhere but in comparison to bigger cities it is relatively safer.
    If you enjoy getting away from big city traffic, this area is perfect for you. It is a small, rural community with a lot of involvement. The general atmosphere is friendly and quaint. I believe the area is slightly growing but overall a great place to plant your family.
