Elwood Reviews

1 review
It is a very small town where everybody knows everybody. There are definitely things I would like to see change in Elwood such as things to do and local support of businesses. I have grown up in Elwood and have seen the town change with me. It is a very tight-knit community where you can say Hi to anyone you see because you are bound to know them. I love Elwood and I'm sad to leave but I am happy to get the opportunity to experience new things. I have seen many of my friends grow up since kindergarten and I'm excited to see who they become.
