Dallas is a small town just 30 minutes from Oregon's State Capital, Salem. The community is great in Dallas. Mostly everyone is friendly, informative, and willing to give a helping hand when others are in need. I love this small town. The Dallas City Park is a great place to go with the family if you want to have a picnic, go on a walk, or play frisbee golf. There's always fun events to be apart of. The local businesses are great especially if you go to the diner called Taters or check out the towns local movie theater downtown right across from the courthouse on Main Street. There are plenty of churches in town so people have options what church to attend based on their religion. New comers can join the Dallas Community Board on Facebook and ask questions about the town to get more familiar with it. If you enjoy living in a small town where everything is a short walking distance away then Dallas is the right place for you.
I became a college student! This year last fall term, I could only take one class because of a discrepancy with F.A.F.S.A, That is all resolved now and winter term is looking in my grasp! I have a meeting with the disability guide today. It is sounding promising !I love Chemeketa Community College!
