  • Our community is safe and friendly
    Elizabeth Thomas

    What I like most about my community is feeling safe. My community is also friendly. I run cross country and I don’t think there has ever been a time when I felt in danger.

    People on the streets who I don’t even know greet me with a smile. Just one little smile can make someone’s day.
