I love the community of locust grove. We all gather for different events to volunteer and see what we could make better in the community. Continuously thinking about ways to make the environment better and more welcoming for others. I always greet the neighbors to make sure they know about different events, and ways to get involved. We don't have many places for entertainment, but we have wonderful parks and historical sites to see. The school system of henry county is known for excellent scores. The schools take pride in students and preparing them for college and success. Not to mention our weather is amazing. We have very sunny days and warm nights. Locust grove as a whole takes satisfaction in being a smaller suburb but also proud to be apart of the metro Atlanta area. Overall, I love being apart of a community that uplifts each individual person making them feel involved in our city.
