We’ve lobbied really hard for Garrison Keillor to give up life in Lake Wobegone and move to Sharon Springs, but thus far he has not answered our letters or returned our calls.

Sharon Springs has beautiful people and above-average children, too, so on to Plan B.

What is a small town village without a small town paper to keep track of what everyone is doing?

Nancy Pfau, the town historian, is now editor of our own little paper.

Each month you can check back here for a new issue and follow the lives of the real village people. If you pay a real visit, you may even want to submit a story idea of your own!

You may not live in small town, but at least you can pretend.

See below for the July 2013 Issue

Garrison Keillor will be at the State Theater in Ithaca on October 14th. Maybe you could personally appeal to him there. lol

Garrison Keillor is coming to Chautauqua Institution on Friday, August 2nd. If you have never been to Chautauqua Lake in Southwestern NY it is worth the trip. Check it out:


Most people think that “Small Town America” is a thing of the past but you are doing a beautiful job highlighting the true sense of community that Small Towns still have. Hopefully more small towns will use Sharon Springs as inspiration!
