A message from Mayor Thompson

Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about the place we call home: Nappanee.

We are very thankful for what we have here.

A great business spirit.

Achieving schools.

Close-knit neighborhoods.

True quality of life.

In Nappanee, we offer excellent services to our residents and visitors. We have parks and recreational activities for all ages. We have dedicated professionals looking after our streets, utilities and building standards. Our police, fire and EMS departments believe in compassion and providing professional service when people are in the greatest need.

Whether you live here or you're just here visiting Amish Acres and the annual Apple Festival, you will recognize we are a small and friendly community. We appreciate the benefits that provides.

When a tornado ravaged our community in 2007, thousands of our caring residents were out in the days and weeks following the storm to help their neighbors clean up and put their lives back in order. Folks in some parts of the country may think that sounds like an unusual occurrence — in Nappanee, it's the way of life.

We have a deep sense of civic pride. On behalf of our residents, our city government works very hard to make sure we maintain those strong feelings.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to stop by city hall, call us or write. We want to hear from you and make Nappanee the best place it can be.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your mayor.


Mayor Larry Thompson
