I live in a small town, Tulia, Texas. In small towns we don’t have the same kind of amenities as a big city does. For example, big cities or even smaller cities have more than one place to get groceries. Tulia is considered a food desert. There is only one grocery store and we share it with two other smaller towns around us. Many people in Tulia have a garden, there’s even a community garden that’s available to people.
Tulia has six sources of education. There is only one High School, Tulia High school, one Jr. High, Tulia Jr. High, two elementary schools, Highland and Swimburn Elementary, and one headstart and one daycare. High school, Jr. High, and Swimburn are all located in the same area they are all on the same street as each other.
In Tulia we have a town celebration, which brings a sense of place to us. Our town celebration is located on the town square. People set up booths with food, games, and clothes and there’s live music. On the third week of July most of the town, and some people from out of town, come and celebrate, listen to music, and hang out with each other. The Saturday our celebration we have a parade There’s a kiddie parade and a reqular parade. The kiddie parade has groups of kids on four-wheelers, dirt bikes, and kids walking in the parade . The parade has almost every business in town in it. It also includes the football players both Jr. High and high school, Cheerleaders and the mascot, baseball players and basketball players.My town is small but iit’s a nice community to grow up in.
