There are too many other nicer towns in VT where you get more for your money anyways to waste any time or money there IMHO.
Thanks! Part of my thing is to keep away from the keeping up with the Jones's culture, and it seems like it's there, but it's a little hard to gauge unless you're more in the community than just stopping places and talking to people here and there.

Hi -

We're a professional family with two kids as well. Moved here 2 years ago. Likely would not make the same decision again - it has been very difficult to find my 'tribe' here. Though I don't feel the need to keep up with the Jones'. You'll be fine dressing down and driving older cars.

That being said, the school has been fabulous for my daughter. It's the reason I'll stay.

Happy to help in anyway.
