I grew up in this city going to public school and got a excellente education. There is a strong sense of community in the city were everyone stills knows each other even though is not exactly a small town. I grew up here and it will always be my home.

The city takes care of its citizens with great parks, services like senior centers, etc. The city also puts on concerts in the park during the summer time. The city does a good job overall maintaining its goal in government on providing the proper services.
