"All my working life, I had spent between three to four hours commuting. Moving to Moultrie seems such a blessing in that respect. I now spend 15 to 20 minutes on my commute and don't have to navigate traffic jams - absolutely wonderful! I moved from the northeast, so the weather is another great attraction. The people I have met around town have been genuinely kind and welcoming."

"After 15 years living in Oklahoma we have landed back in the region where we were born and raised. We live in the nearby, charming community of Thomasville so that we can be close to family. We and our two teenagers have been welcomed and quickly found ourselves immersed in local activities. Our 23 mile country road commute to PCOM South Georgia is simply picturesque and traffic-free."
