It h is been interesting to learn of the progress made from the time the small
family of pioneers came and settled until the present time. We close our book with
this thought: we leave the future of our village to you --- the future citizens. May
you always have the pioneer spirit to reach new goals. May you preserve the tra-
ditions of our early settlers to have a charitable concern for each other, and con-
tinue to live in unity for the good of all.
I ran across the following poem and I think it tells so much of what many of
us feel about our town:
LITTLE TOWN
I like to live in a little town
Where the trees meet across the street;
Where you wave your hand, and say "hello"
To everyone you meet.
I like to stand for a moment
Outside the grocery store
And listen to the friendly gossip
Of the folks that live next door.
For life is interwoven
With the friends we learn to know;
And we hear their joys and sorrows
As we daily come and go.
So I like to live in a small town
I care no more to roam,
For every house in a little town
Is more than a house, it's home.
