I like the small class sizes in school, but small town life has always been weird to me. I would like people to gossip less in this town, everyone knows everyone else, so as soon as something happens, the whole town already knows about it. Hamilton also has only one grocery store which is annoying because the closes Walmart is at least half an hour away.

Hamilton is a small community where everyone knows one another and is very supportive of each other. My mother has always said that her favorite part of living in Hamilton is the fact that she knows if she is unable to take care of me due to an emergency, work conflict or any other reason, we have many friends that would step in and care for me as if I were their own child. Of course, my mother would do the same. Hamilton is "What a Hometown Should Be!"

I have grown up in Hamilton. While it has its problems, I know that many residents would give the shirts off their backs to help one of their own.
