Raymond is a very small town. Everybody knows everybody which can be good and bad. The community is like one big family, but in any small town rumors spread like wildfire. It's a safe place where hunting, fishing, and farming is very popular. If you're someone who wants to live around malls, movie theaters, and fancy restaurants, Raymond probably isn't the place for you. We live far out on the coast so we have to travel about an hour to get to any of those places. Overall, growing up in Raymond has been great and the pros outweigh the cons.

Hi, the thing I like best is that the entire school will support you if you do something well. Favoritism can be a problem in the school itself, but every kid can participate in something.
Hi, I like the small town feel, how everyone knows someone, and will step up to help or root you on from the community. You can have the peace and quiet of country life and no noisy city or roads.
