There are many sports leagues for children and adults, including a YMCA close-by and a few other places that involve kids in this community. Neighbors tend to keep to themselves sometimes but help each other when needed and will talk occasionally. Our high school football team, the West Allegheny Indians bring a lot of people in this community together to watch their games due to their continual success in past seasons.

I would absolutely love to live here again! Its very quiet, with a lot of trees and natural surroundings. All the people are very friendly at ever house.
This township is a close knit community that all enjoy interacting together. Most everyone is connected to others in the community in one way or another.
