Awesome school system, diverse population with farm help jobs. Wish there were more job opportunities and better places to eat!
It was a good place to grow up in. It has a small town feel to it, but not too small where the only place to hang out is the grain bin. The high school has incredible arts programs for a small school and is not too small population wise. There are a lot of opportunities to enjoy the friendly community from Summerfest to spending time at the local churches. It's quaint place to have a family.
