There’s nothing to do in Fredonia

With a population just over 11,000, Fredonia isn’t big enough for some people.

“There’s nothing to do in such a small town. It’s nice to go to college here, but it’s not somewhere I’d want to live forever.”

I walked into a small coffee shop the other night to see forty people practicing the ukulele. A middle-aged woman has managed to start a ukulele meet-up that attracts dozens of people every Friday evening. A group of forty people sat together practicing an obscure instrument in a tucked-away corner on Main Street.

It seems community can be built just about anywhere by people who care.
