My Community is small, connected and very close, with families living in the area for 50 to 70 years. Both set of my Grandparents are still living and have lived here all their lives. We have several animal adoption centers and I have even volunteered at Wag Feast events and the Humane Society. I even foster my first dog who soon became part of my family. We have Community Events for everyone. Our local YMCA serves children with daycare, camps and free swimming classes for all third grade classes in our County. We also have a Museums, a Senior Center where the Seniors can exercise, do crafts, play cards, eat lunch or take trips. Our Vineyards are beautiful and several folks use them for Weddings.

I love living in this small town Community. We have a State Park to hike, lakes for swimming, fishing and boating and so many more opportunities, like hunting, a Theater, Community College, Vineyards and a Golf Course. I love riding horses and we have the Fork Stables where the Olympic Equestrian Team attends for time trails and I volunteer. We have all four seasons which is nice and I enjoy experiencing each one. Our local School System is having issues regarding need for academic growth and no new facilities. We recently had new Stores open for shopping and I'm so excited. I no longer have to go out of County to shop some of my favorite Stores. If I had to live anywhere, I would chose my home town again.

We have issues like any other Community. I feel safe in my home town but we did have a shooting at our local high school and that was very scary. The Dare Office responded immediately and no other kids were involved. Crime is increasing with home/car break-ends, Gang and drug related concerns. Police are always seen on our local roads, High school and Community events.
