Being a 2nd time resident of Lake Station, I came back to my hometown after living in 9th place Indianapolis for 20 years. I'm college educated. Both my husband and myself are gainfully employed.

Growing up here was like growing up anywhere else, parents worked really hard, kids rode their bikes and played in the parks. From what I can see after my return parents are still the same hard working people, kids still ride their bikes and play in the parks. The people of Lake Station have big hearts and are willing to help out a fellow classmate or co-worker when in need. People may not have a lot to give but they give what they can when they can.
