This is a small town with not a whole lot to do but the crime rate is low and the schools are amazing. The people are kind and giving and smiling and its just an all around good place to be. It is clean and the cost of living is affordable. it is an hour away from the bigger cities and shopping areas

FOX theater has been around for a really long time offering 2 movie screens to enjoy buttered popcorn and snacks in front of. The Wipeout swimming pool has 2 slides and offers hot dogs and burgers slushies nachos and other great treats
