Having moved to Arab from a large city has been a wonderful experience. I have seen the people who live here help anyone who needs help, all you have to do is ask.

“I moved from California and thought that I wouldn’t fit in, but people have taken me in. I have great friendships, I am part of many families, and married a beautiful woman. ”

Nicholas Belpasso

When I was young I couldn’t wait to move away from Arab. After being gone a year, I realized how much I missed our small town life and moved our family back.
