I like that we are a small community and everybody knows each other, and don't mine helping nobody. I would like to change the fact it's not enough activities for the kids to explore. It's very sad how they spend money on trees then opening up a center for us.
Century is a very small town 30 miles N of Pensacola,Fl . Most of the people are very friendly. We had a tornado hit in Feb of 2016 and the community pulled together to help each other. The thing I dislike the most in my town is the drugs that are here. A lot of people buying and selling pills and weed. The local Sheriff Deputies are working to make it better.
