Everyone knows everyone and we all help each other out when we are in need. We all rally for each other and nobody in need gets left behind. The schools are awesome and the community is a safe one plus, tremont has a pool.
The community is very strong, supportive, and energetic. Things are always happening, and new events are always going on. They are very supportive and always come together in times of need.
