Start a fundraiser and give to the people in our community that have cancer.

Start a fundraiser to buy toys for kids in need and food and drinks for families in need; also clothes for people in need.

Make people stop abandoning pets.

Build a bowling alley in the old bowling alley.  Also have a grocery store.  Have an arcade.  Have a Rec Center with basketball court, swimming pool, racquetball court and a workout room.  Have a coffee shop and a farmers market.

Make a restaurant so we don't have to drive out of town for one and for jobs for people.

Make a paintball center.

Make Creek Days bigger, have a bigger parade, have fire fighters water fights, kids mud volleyball, a can drive for the shelter.

Organize a community outreach program to help elderly people shovel snow, rake leaves.  It would teach kids hard work and coming together.
