During the first two weeks of December 2022, we asked you, our community, why you love Irricana. The responses we received were heartwarming, thoughtful, and a great example of why we all love small-town living. Below you’ll find over 50 responses. Thank you to everyone who participated at the Post Office and Library during the Random Acts of Kindness initiative!
