The Springs General Store is the unofficial center of the hamlet, a place where people flock for breakfast on weekends or coffee and camaraderie on weekday mornings, and where children head after school for a bag of candy or three cookies for $3. "For me the biggest gift is that I was able to be an active part of the community in a way that one person cannot always be," said the business's owner, Kristi Hood.
