WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US
Arnold is a very active community, and we love hearing feedback from our residents, visitors, extended families, and communities near and far. We often hear things like “How did you do that,” or “We want to be like Arnold,” or “We love Arnold, it feels like home,” so we decided to share a few of these comments with you.
I was first introduced to Arnold in the fall of 1984, thanks to a dear friend whom I had met in Panama during my last year of active service in the US Army. John Rhodes was 20 years my senior at the time; he had retired from active military service years before and was now ending a full career as Federal Civil Service Employee. John and I became good friends, in part because of our mutual love of the outdoors, especially hunting, fishing, and the shooting sports.
I am involved in open road racing and travel to many areas of the country for my events. August each year brings us back to Arnold, NE, and one of the “Friendliest Places on Earth!” The people in that surrounding community are always so giving and helpful in every aspect of our time there. It has to be part of their core values to be so genuine!
I grew up in Lincoln, NE, but spent many days during the summer, and other times of the year, in Arnold. The people of Arnold genuinely took interest in this city boy. My Grandma and Grandpa Halstead were laid to rest in the Arnold Cemetery, and when I visit their graves, I look forward to the day that I, too, will be buried in Arnold.
