Our Town

  • This City is what it is because our citizens are what they are.


  • A great city is not to be confounded with a populous one.


  • Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

    Margaret Mead

  • Living in a rural setting exposes you to so many marvelous things - the natural world and the particular texture of small-town life, and the exhilarating experience of open space.
