What brought me here, what keeps me here and what is best about Brunswick is the same thing: there’s a strong sense of family and community.
There are just wonderfully, insanely good people that live in this community and we see the outpouring of family values. You see strong families, you see a community that really unites together over and over again.
You know, this past week, there was a football player from Heidelberg University who passed away in an ATV accident and you could see the outpouring of care and support. Whether it’s the loss of a loved one so young or just doing something good like a Habitat for Humanity build day, there’s an outpouring of people who want to help.
That’s what makes Brunswick such a great place: strong families, strong family values, strong sense of community, genuine, authentic sense of compassion and concern for one other.
While it’s actually a pretty large suburb, it has a very warm, personal, community family feel to it. It’s a rare mix that you don’t see all over the place anymore.
