Celebrate National Rural Health Day

Our rural community is a wonderful place to live and work.  It’s a small, farming area where neighbors know each other, listen to each other, respect each other, and work together to benefit the greater good. It’s also a great place to start a business and test your “entrepreneurial spirit”, as the recent increase in storefronts have shown us. This community provides the rest of the country with a wealth of services and commodities, and they are the economic engine that has helped the United States become the world economic power it is today.
