I live in a town (25 square miles) that used to be all farming now it is all houses and there is basically a main street with 10 pizza shops one grocery store and lately five car repair shops have moved in. There are also a wide variety of empty stores. There is no local recreation for teens nothing but a park with a fish pond. Our biggest building besides the schools is the library. We have only one claim to fame we host a dinky corn festival every year. I have been wanting to start a quilt group but can't seem to drum up much interest. I have been here my entire life my husband was born in a house a couple miles from where we live. I just wish there was something here to draw people out of their houses and into a community spirit. Everything that has been tried has died out after a couple years.
