Growth Can Be Good


s a “transplant” to the city of Fenton about 15 years ago, I have watched this small town and the area called “Dibbleville” transform. The once beautiful but tired old buildings have been restored, renewed, and brought back to life. People are walking around our beautiful town where, once upon a time, you only saw this kind of activity when a small group would gather at the gazebo to photograph a special event.

Parades have always brought us together, but the stay in town was short. Now, new shops, services, and restaurants are welcoming our friends and neighbors. People, young and old alike, are meeting their friends, enjoying ice cream, taking a stroll or a run along the street, or just hanging out together by the river. One thing that hasn’t changed, people say “hi” or smile as they pass each other along the way. Can’t beat this small town!
