The town Barnesville might not be the biggest town or have the most activities, but we still make the most of what we have. The population of Barnesville in 2017 was 2,582 people.  A few years ago Barnesville used to have a bowling alley, movie theater, and and bakeries. Junior Hannah Keller said, “I leave 2 or 3 times a week,” to go and do activities in the Fargo/Moorhead area. People in town might like not having to drive to Fargo to have fun,  maybe Barnesville could add a few more activities for the community. Barnesville does have some fun things to do. Eighth grader Kenzie Skogen said she enjoys “playing basketball against my friends, going for bike rides, and having bonfires in the summer.” The town has some good community involvement, but if there were  more options on events/activities the town could possibly attract a wider community. Sophomore Kaylee Johnson said, “I wish we had a bowling alley and maybe an outdoor movie theater.” Johnson has some great ideas and one day maybe Barnesville will have a pool or movie theater again. Barnesville is a wonderful town with wonderful people!
