It is a small town, and thus, its citizens look out for one another. But that being as it may, there is hardly a diversity in personality in this quaint town.

Small town with not much to do but very friendly atmosphere. There needs to be many more businesses and things to do on the weekends.
The people should be more open and friendly but overall, It isn't a bad community.
