The little town that could... The community of Elma is a community of re-birth and endless growth. Through many catastrophes in its early days, the citizens of Elma, with their spirit of home town pride, persevered and rebuilt the community at every turn. This home town spirit and constant strive to make Elma the "best little bedroom community around" is still alive today. It is evident among the families who reside here, as well as in the businesses, organizations, and Mennonite cultures that dot our landscape.
