My hometown is a great place to live where everybody knows everybody and people are always willing to lend a helping hand. The crime is very low therefore safety is not much of a concern. We have nice clean streets and well maintained neighborhoods. The commercial industry is growing and getting stronger. Family life is important to residents. For a small community we have three excellent schools to choose from to which all provide an excellent education to students. I see the future of my community only growing in a positive direction. So much so that my intent once I graduate college is to move back to my hometown and obtain a position at our local hospital so that I can give back to my community.

Close community of people who work together to help one another out. Perfect place to raise a family or retire. Not a lot of opportunities for younger people in terms of activities or growth.
Nice people, however an "everybody knows everybody" town. Most people are helpful and support each other in times of need.
