What do you think?

I belong to several Facebook groups here in town and I want to put a question out to people so I thought this might be a way to do it. I know a lot of you no longer live in one town but I'm sure you have an opinion anyway.

In these groups we get lots of complaints that there's nothing for kids or adults for that matter to do in this town. Do you feel that it's up to a town to provide entertainment for kids, teens & adults? Any opinions? Looking forward to hearing lots of opinions.


  1. I don't think it is obligatory for a small town to provide activities, but if they have a sizeable teen/kid population it would probably benefit the town to provide something. Maybe a parent organization could do the actual fund raising for equipment and the town provide the land?

  2. i think so. being that the town is made up of people that live there. it's beneficial for the town to provide wholesome entertainment because it brings people together, and fosters a feeling of closeness. and when that happens, the town is a happier place, which leads to positive thoughts, and positive thoughts & pride in said town lowers crime rates. seriously. have you ever seen a happy criminal? cuz when i see mugshots they all look pretty grumpy to me.

  3. No one else has come forth, so I will say this: It is usually up to some enterprising individuals to put in a business that will be good for parents and kids. That was what my uncle and I did here. We installed a Mini-Golf which also served some food items. We had lots of families spend their evenings with us.

    1. I did get a few comments by email but thanks for yours!
