Karen and I are very excited to be in our new home in New Athens. We have been here for almost 3 months and have met many wonderful neighbors. We have created this website to share in exploring the Metro East area. We’re curious about the people, towns, events, and local businesses. We believe that community is essential and that sharing what we learn will be one way of building our community in our new lives. By sharing ourselves with everyone we learn more about the world. So encourage you to join us as we get started and hope you’ll check in often to see what we are up to. If you have any suggestions on places or events let’s know. Bruce & Karen
