COMMUNITY
Tieton SchoolIndividuals join together in communities to provide for the well being of all and because some individuals have special skills needed by others. Schools, local governments, police and fire protection agencies, and assorted retail businesses are established. Skilled professionals such as doctors, blacksmiths, and pharmacists become residents because they are able to make a living selling their services. Sports fields, community parks, and hotels are among the places where individuals come together to socialize and relax.
