My neighborhood is great! Not only because of the people who live here, but also because of where it's located - so today I am thankful to be living in my small town!
It has been a wonderful place to raise a family because the community is still close-knit and community-oriented! Our little town of 30+ thousand hosts more community events than you can imagine and everyone still goes to the high school football games on Friday nights!
We celebrate Halloween with a Trick-or-Treat in the Park,
Christmas with a parade and snow in the park,
Easter with the biggest Easter egg hunt I've ever seen,
and an awesome 4th of July parade and party in the park as well!!
We are lucky to have three major parks in our town and they serve as the hub for community events. In the spring and summer there are concerts at one park, movies at another and even a 'dive-in' movie at the city pool! Best of all, all this family fun can be had for free!
And that's something else to be thankful for!
