From the outside, many may assume that those who live life in a small town all know one another. Small town life attracts a variety of people, some who will never leave and others who are looking for a change of pace from the challenges a larger city brings. On Saturday, Sept. 26, Linden Together hosted its second block party, this one themed “Meet Your Neighbor.” It was a delightful way for everyone in town to get out of the house, shop, and enjoy a bit of visiting with old friends and new neighbors. Even the furry neighbors got in on the fun, with a host of dogs, goats, chickens, and even a baby potbelly pig in attendance. No doubt, it was a delightful time had by all. Photos By Jamie Jeans
