I love this area, and I couldn't think of a better place to live. Everyone is very neighborly, and extremely kind and generous. There is virtually no crime, great school systems, and overall a very high quality of lifestyle, while not being overly luxurious.
Everyone is very connected in this area. We recently had a drive to try and find a match for a local child with blood cancer for a bone marrow transplant. Events and projects like this are common in this area, everyone loves to lend a helping hand.
