Busy, involved members belonging to several clubs and groups from the school, churches, city, etc. are the ones who tirelessly make things happen and we thank and appreciate them.
Stanton is a good place for all ages; many times I have seen young and elderly pitching in together, working with pride, to do what is needed in a situation, such as passing the library books, almost 4 blocks, from person to person, hand to hand, to the new library. One of many great memories for Stanton residents!
