Gervais is a small but nice town in Oregon. We have everything you could need, except maybe a Starbucks. There is a market and two parks. We are currently building a Dollar General store, which means there are more jobs available, which we need since there are not many stores or places here to get a job. We have a middle school and a high school, which have many students. Both schools have a nice playground and track with a football, baseball and soccer field. This town is very diverse. Most of the people here are Hispanic, Russian, or American. Everyone is pretty nice and there isn't much crime here at all. It is a nice town to live in and it is very close to Woodburn, which has all of the stores and places that we don't have and can get to in about 5 or 10 minutes.

It's small and friendly but needs more attractions.
I have some neighbors that would gladly come help me with stuff as well as appreciate the things that everyone does to help each other no matter how small.
