    The community is very supportive of the schools and the school activities. When someone gets diagnosed with cancer, the whole community comes together and sets up a fundraiser pot luck. Also, people tend to stay in this community for their whole life. Teachers teach the sons and daughters of those people who used to be students to the same teacher years before.

    I love the country where you can see the stars in the sky every night. When I start a family of my own, I'd love to move to an area like I grew up in. I would rather live in a more secluded area than a big city. In the future, I see this area growing in more ways than I can imagine, and I am excited to see what the future brings.
    There are lots of options for housing in this area: in town, on the outskirts of town, or farther out in the country. The quality of housing is for the most part very good. There are some houses, like any other town, that are not the best, but it is all the family can afford.
