Griswold Reviews

1 review
I have lived in Griswold, Iowa my entire life. While it started out as a nice place with a lot of community involvement and family-friendly place, it began to turn to a different kind of town as I aged. We used to have fun Easter festivities in the park, an annual Corn Boil, and Santa would visit our library every Christmas. Now, none of these events take place. I would like to see the community spirit to blow back into our small town. I would like to know my neighbors again and be able to invite them over for a barbecue. I still love this town, but I want this town to love me back again.
