Small-town generosity is inspiring

This community never ceases to amaze me. To visitors, it is a place of beauty, outdoor recreation, friendly people, festivals and fun. To live here, is to be inspired. Community groups here share one mission: to genuinely help others. I’ve learned that people here don’t just wear one hat, or belong to one group, but to many. Some belong to the Senior Center Affairs Foundation, Pine-Strawberry Business Community, Library Friends and the Riff-Raff Club — or two or three other groups — all at the same time.
