I love my hometown! Everyone knows everyone... which is a blessing and a curse. Overall, the town of Kentwood has been a blessing to me from birth and nothing needs to change.

The local business in town was mostly family owned. With it being such a small town and everyone really clinging to family, that is who got hired.
