I was raised in Greenfield all my life so for a small town, it was a pretty good place to grow up in. Everyone from the school system, church, local businesses, to the community, was very close and helpful with one another. What I would like to see change is more programs and opportunities for the youth to further become successful with their lives so they can further help in the world.

I like that Greenfield is a very peaceful place it is peaceful because there is not a huge population of people here. In Greenfield, there are also many people that one knows because of its little population. Mostly everyone here gets along and is very well known.
I like that Greenfield is peaceful and quiet for the most part. Here I have not had major conflicts with neighbors. Most neighbors kept to themselves but there are some who we made friends with. A plus and minus is that a fire station is within our neighborhood.
