Black Creek is a great place to live

The Black Creek village board met on Monday, May 8 at 6:30 p.m.
Allyson Watson introduced herself as a representative from the Outagamie County UW Extension.
She said that Black Creek was chosen in the Young Adult Study they are doing because Black Creek has been very successful retaining young adults form the age range of 20 to 40. Watson said that every young person that leaves the community, that another one joins, usually through a spouse. “This is a testament of the quality of life in this community,” said Watson. They are studying 15 communities throughout the state and they are conducting interviews within the age group in Black Creek. The study will provide stories of each community and let outside people know why Black Creek is a great place to live. They are still looking for people in the community to interview within the age range, they have eleven and would like twenty. The interviews take about a half hour and can be done by phone or in person. Anyone between the ages of 20 to 40 in the community that would like to be interviewed can contact Watson through her email address:
