Living in Grinnell, KS
We have kids
living from Denver to Kansas City along I-70.†
After retirement from our jobs in Dodge City, Alyce as cook at the
middle school there and I as assistant director of special education, we
wanted to be able to visit our kids easily.†
We started looking in towns we liked from WaKeeney
to Levant, KS.† We also
looked at Denver but housing costs were high and the traffic was
bad.† We narrowed our search in the
towns we liked and then at homes in these towns. We found a house we liked in
Grinnell and also liked the town, so bought the house and have lived here for
We are certainly
glad to be in Grinnell-we have a wonderful lifestyle and excellent quality of
life.† Some say there is nothing to do
in a small town, but thatís not true.†
We are not the most social of people but we could be busy with
community activities all the time.
It would be nice
to have a doctor and hospital in town, but it takes less time to drive to the
excellent medical facilities in a nearby town than it took to drive across
town in Denver to our family doctor.
things we need; lumber and hardware, furniture, groceries, meat locker,
insurance-all taken care of in Grinnell.
One of our
daughters who is now living in Denver will be moving with her family to Grinnell
soon.† Another daughter in Denver is tired of city living also and is thinking of
moving to a small town. †We are hoping
she will come here too.
We are glad to
be here in Grinnell; there are good people here.
