Waddams Township Reviews

Everyone complains about my hometown area. It's a small rural community surrounded by multiple other farm towns. The closest mall is an hour away. You have to drive 15 minutes to get to the closest Wal-Mart even. However, despite all that people bash on our town for, it is what you make of it. The downtown is prospering and local business is booming. I love Lena

Good employment. Great benefits, 401k, and health insurance. Cheese factory work is the lifestyle and most everybody works at one or they work at the local Wal-Mart.
Within a 10 mile radius of me there is only two bars, two gas stations, private owned grocery store, and one laundry mat. WORST ever. To get things for "do-it yourself" projects you have to drive over 15 miles to the local Wal-Mart or Menards for your project needs. These have everything. ONE STOP SHOPPING. Mom-and-pop shops are the things that bring these towns together, from the customer service at a gas station to the food satisfactory at local bars, these simple things are what make home, home. Without them we are just a small cluster of people in a small living area.
