Ayer, Massachusetts is a considerably smaller town in regards to nearby cities/towns such as Leominster, Fitchburg, Westford, Acton, and Littleton. With a population recently documented at about 3,000, Ayer sees quite a collection of colorful residents to say that least. Known around surrounding towns as a haven for homeless, drug addicted, and obscene alcoholics, Ayer, in it's 1.2 sq mile collection of land, hosts a school of approximately 370 students in a school system that rates 208th out of Massachusetts' 348 public schools, quite a feat of modest actuality.
Ayer is predominantly white (88%), yet many will find upon meeting commoners of the town Saloons that they in fact act and believe they are of a different racial conglomerate. With many of these residents holding adolescent qualities of 'betterman syndrome', Ayer actually remains a relatively safe town, with police blotter (more commonly than not) registering trips to the neighborhood bars to deal with scraps that resulted from shoulder to shoulder connection, usually accidental.
