I like living in Glance because it's a nice, quaint town with a strong community. People who may be strangers are willing to help out their neighbors in any way. The people pretty much know one another and have a deep connection.

Small hometown area which includes several restaurants and gas stations. I like the friendliness of this area. It's a place where everybody knows everybody. Would love to see a larger grocery store come to the area, but it is very convenient to the nearby wal-mart
Glencoe is a very friendly city. It is a very safe city and it offers very good police and fire protection. Glencoe has very good public schools and the High School offers higher level classes that can be used for college credit.
