I like my community. Everyone is very giving and supportive. I do wish the community could come together and figure out this water/sewer issue. Not only is it outrageously expensive, I'm very concerned for the health of my family.

I liked growing up here, the school system was really great. Amazing teachers! The only thing I didn't like is the weather and the terrain. I love the mountains! That is why I left. I would live here again only because I am going to go to school to be a teacher and would love teaching in the Brandon Valley School District!
Brandon is a close knit community. We are always there for each other in the good and bad times. Our community is very friendly to families and elders. Even though it is sometimes quiet, we always have activities going on in Brandon. Brandon is a excellent community to live in.
