Kirk's community has maintained its ethos for decades

Kirk does not sense that his community has changed a great deal between the 1930s and 1970s. New residents have changed the tenor of the area a little bit, but Kirk thinks that if people want to move to a farming area, they are the kind of people who will fit in with a farming community. He thinks his community, while it is getting a bit more rushed, is still the type of place where neighbors rely on one another.
