Wayne County is made up of several small communities of hard-working families. This enjoyable rural area is quiet, friendly, and small enough to meet new people and make great friends. Our area has a very high percentage of people that have been raised in the church. Our schools (especially Dalton) have had high ranks and people often seek out this area for this reason. The rolling hills and scenic farmland create a beautiful visual impression for residents and passers-by.
Does this sound like an environment in which you would like to serve?
