Does Adel have a welcome wagon for newcomers that just moved here? Also why can't Adel be more friendlier? I have met some rude people in this town. Smile, Be Nice, it will make your day go better.

I don't know of an Adel Welcome Wagon. But I will agree with you on rude people. This town is full of hateful, mean, rude, backstabbing, cheating, lying, drunks. That get away with things because of who they are. IF you are not born here, raised here, you will never be welcome here. I won't spend money in Adel, just because I don't want anyone in this town to prosper off of me!!

Hello!! I don't think Adel has a welcome wagon but I agree with you about people being rude. However not EVEYONE here is like that. There are nice people they are just hard to come by.

Cook County has a website with a forum. It's just getting started but the people there are VERY nice! Stop by and check it out.

Most of the previous comments I find sadly true. The website mentioned above is mostly concerned with only those who think alike and have established roots in the area. I wish there was a place for newcomers here to get together ( those who don't have relatives or friends from birth). People here are friendly on the surface, but once you get to know them, they are really wrapped up in everyone they already know and have no need or genuine interests for any newcomers, even if they are die-hard conservatives, political,traditional, and religious wise. Most don't want to do any thing else to others except shun them. I'd love to have a place for non-natives here to get to know each other. Anyone have any ideas? I'd like to see more free thinkers here. If someone had the potential to open a nice local bar, like Cheers, for example, it might draw some open minds long enough to get to know each other before they eventually got closed down by the Cook County Clones! They don't have to be wild drunks. They would be kicked out!

11 year outsider,

sounds like your one of those people that creates problems for yourself.
I wasnt born and raised here and Ive met nothing but nice friendly people. The website http://adelgeorgia.net/phpBB/ Ive found to be a good place to learn of events and it has some good conversations.
Not everyone agrees with each other but if you can follow some simple rules and not try to be some headstrong snob you may find some friends.

I have to say you sound like your personality was sour before you got here.
just passing thru

Adel isn't bad but with the way things are and how busy people are maybe newcomers should be willing to take the fir step and say hi to us. The Adel GA site has some good information on it and the people seem okay but I not a real joiner.

I agree with Thomas, you sound like you have an attitude problem and maybe thats why you cant make friends.

adel is a small town with small ideals of old. they over look some things and others they talk about all the time. such as gay people i know its in the bible but their is alot of things in the bible that they overlook. such as being a glutton. its in the bible also but they say will thats not the same but it is. how can you treat your body like that it is the body god gave you and you kill it like that. if you cant controll your eating how can you expect someone to controll their real feelings? no im not gay but ive had gay friends for many years and will not treat them bad for anyone. let god handle this. also i went to a chruch for one and half years i stop going not one person has called me, or came by to ask me if im sick or if im dead. no you cant say that its because of my ideals because if its that then dont i really need to be in chruch. treating people like this ( not including me in chruch things and chruch vat. bible school, unless its in the kitchen) IS NOT GOD LIKE. dont get me started about taxes. how come we dont see them lowered like other citys in cook country? so treat people like you would like to be treated. if you were in another town would you like to be treated like you treat people that come here anew.( a lil play on words) THINK!

Dot, to me it sounds like your trying to right a wrong by referring to another wrong.

Anyway, back on topic, Adel is a great place with great people. Sure there are the occasional bad apples and not everybody agrees but please tell me where that would be true anywhere.

I've visited the site mentioned above many times and I agree it tends to lean conservative but I also noticed that there are liberals and even one openly lesbian.(gasp and shock)

So, before you condemn, please know the facts.

Also, you may want to join in (if you can hold an adult conversation) and present your point of view. You may not get the response you want, which seems to be total agreement, but you will have the opportunity to present your ideas in an open and fair debate.

this for you joe i didnt say that u couldnt hold an adult conversationand for you say that i may not well thats just being a child and trying to pick a fight. im not going to the level. i was not talking about the site i was talking about adel. some people are rude some are not but its just hard to get close to people here. i know its because its a small town. i was talking about how i was treated at chruch. the only people i condemn is the one i had contact with, so you need to get your facts right. i dont want to start a back and forth please. i just wanted to remind people think about how you treat new people.
