What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?
What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?
None at all, there is nothing here, you have to drive out to do anything. No organization ever welcomed us, rather the opposite. There are busybodies here, one woman in particular drives by my house, stops, rolls down her window and says something like "that dog should be on a leash". (My dog has a narrow black leash, not very visible). Sometimes she just stops and gives me a hateful look.
In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.
This town is all-white, people are rather oldish, few children except those attending the Gill St-Bernards School. I am the only non-white person I have ever seen here and I do not feel comfortable. I have lived here over one year and people have called the police on me 3 times, for nothing illegal such as walking my dog too close a neighbor's lawn, for starting our ATV and once for talking to an elderly woman down the street. I am scared and planning to move out.
What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?
No industries here, a couple of restaurants, a rather large bank, a few small stores. I am a physician, I work away from here (thankfully).
In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?
This is a very quiet town, nothing happens, you hardly ever see anyone walking.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.
I would advise any non-white person to stay out of this bitter, racist little town.
Also, be careful, the speed limit is 25mph, and the idle police have nothing else to do here, as there is no crime, they will get you for speeding. Such a small town should not have its own police force, they should be part of Chester or Bedminster.
