Windom is a town of 4,000 people, and that smallish community aspect is felt whenever I go anywhere because I always run into someone I know. There is a strong passion for what should be best for the town and while that is good, it can also be a downfall because there can be a lot of rivalries within town causing some problems.

Having grown up in Windom, its great to have a small community that is easy to get to know everyone. For a small town Windom has quite a bit to offer. They do need more places to sit down and eat. With only 2 restaurants in the town and no place for breakfast, a good breakfast place would be good.
Access to medical needs and there are options available for exercise/fitness but hours are limited since it is a small community. Limited purchases of some foods due to having only one grocery store in town.
