Is Aurora Friendlier than other Communities?
Posted by auroracitizen on March 30, 2011
We recently received the following note from a reader.
I have lived in many places with my family, from Scarborough, Unionville, Guelph, and Richmond Hill and never have I experienced more unfriendliness than I have as in Aurora. People rarely smile, say hello and try very much to keep to themselves. I joined several community activities and experience the same feeling.
Does anyone have an opinion why this is so?
Aurora has always prided itself on its community spirit — but have we started to change with the growth?
How do new arrivals feel? Do they still feel the sense of community many longer term resident felt when we arrived?
Is it difficult to get involved in programs due to overcrowding? What about adult programs?
We’d be interested in hearing from both newer and older arrivals. How did you get involved? What tips do you have for new arrivals?
