My small town has a very small community feel to it everyone knows almost everyone. The school system if though very small the technology is very up to date. Our children are getting a great education and feel the teachers are giving them one on one teaching time. Our children are very fond of the school system and how well the children all get along. I would totally live here if I was to do it again and have made reccommendations for others to move here. I grew up in a small town and loved the options I had to learn about country living and not the city life. The learn about the outdoors and how to do other things than watching TV and computer all day.

I see alot of the farms going away and smaller companies going in I hope this does not take away the small country feel of our small town.

I think everyone anywhere is concerned for the safety of any community .

There is crime in our town however not alot you may here of a break in here or there but no alot.

there is always a rise of break ins at holiday time of course. We do have our own township police officers as well as sheriffs deputies on call.
There are plenty of opportunities available in the area and surrounding towns
