They could be better. They are very close and tight knit group when it comes to work, and when it comes to the festivals every year.

I have lived in Oskaloosa, Kansas my entire life and I could not think of a better small town to live in. There is just enough people to communicate with and less than enough not to feel claustrophobic. The people in Oskaloosa are friendly and extremely united.
