RAINBOW FAMILY GATHERINGS: Unofficial Community for Rainbow Family
greetings yea decorah can be like that however its a great place when you really get to know the people i grew up in that area.
I've lived in Decorah for the last 6 years. It's really important to get out there and participate in the community. TONS of stuff happens here, you just have to be game to pursue the opportunities. Check out decorahnow.com for a listing of lots of local events for varied interests. :)
Volunteering at Seed Saver's is a great idea. They draw a lot of 20-ish folks to the area. Volunteering at the co-op might be another good opportunity. In my experience, I'd say to some degree, yes-- it is true that Luther student mingling tends to be limited. There are, of course, the occasional exceptions.
Side note, the 20-something popular aside from Luther really seems to be growing. I feel as if I'm always meeting new people to the area, and I'm sure we'll see another influx as spring approaches. We can be a bit of a seasonal town.
Sounds like you're really giving your experience some good effort. Keep it up!
