A small town where everyone knows everyone. Could be nicer if people cared about where they lived. To be a successful community we need unity along with being able to work together to make our town better than before.

I moved to Reserve about five years ago. Moving from a big city to a small town was a big change. I like how everyone knows each other and diverisity of the resedents. I do not like the lack of things to do, such as places to eat, shop, and hang out on the weekends.
I love the history of Reserve. You can literally feel the history in the air. The people here are good and they are supportive. The only thing missing is some opportunities. This town has so much potential.
