For more than 20 years, I have been living and/or working around Coats. I first came as a student who just left my parent's house in Florida. At that time, I felt scared and completely overwhelmed coming to such a small town. As I finished my degree, got married and started having children, I always found myself around the town of Coats. I decided that I wanted my children to the local elementary school and I also wanted to work there. My husband agreed and we decided to build a house here. The town of Coats has always been very welcoming and the small town vibe is just what my family needed.

Coats is a lovely small town surrounded by country and farmland. You may get behind tractors while driving, but you can bet you'll see familiar faces when you shop at Carlie C's IGA. Coats is a family community with fun events such as it's annual Farmer's Day.
This area is ok, considering where it's at in town. Not much goes on around this particular area except for the occasional sirens blaring in the middle of the night. If I could choose whether to live here again or not, I would probably still choose to live here again, because there is no way you can replace the good memories that you get from staying in one place for so long by choosing a new place. I'm sure good memories can be forged in any place of your choosing, but I would rather not change anything.
