Living in this town is a wonderful opportunity for families and meeting new people. That sort of friendly southern bonding exists here and the support you need is always there someway. Lots to do, lots of fun and opportunities.
The parks and recreation options are also a huge blessing here for all the families and provide a way for you to be involved in the arts, sports, general health and exercise. We are so blessed to have so many things with which to be involved.
