It just seems that folks don’t seem as prone to become involved in their community these days. In a post titled “Gen X, Gen Y, and Community Involvement” on the Reimagine Rural blog I was reading today, it discusses the challenges in getting 45 and younger people involved in community activities. Seems like there are also fewer in the older generation staying involved in rural civic organizations these days in a lot of places.
Where I live? Not so bad. We have a quality of place real neighbors create — why we even saw the mayor downtown at the play tonight!
