I have lived here for 2.5-3 years now and we just bough a house here. The small town love you cannot find in a big city. I grew up in a small town then moved to the city and I miss that feel of knowing everyone, when we moved to Chetwynd right away I knew I didn’t want to be anywhere else. The mom and pops stores everyone knows each other they welcome you like you were their own kids. The small community that comes together to help out each other if just beyond love example the devastating flood we had no one turned their back to anyone just shows the small town love.
