Strengthening Ties in Small-town Michigan

Alpena, Michigan

Story Narrative:

What does living in a small town teach you?

"Living in a small town teaches you about relationships and strengthening them with neighbors, colleagues at work, church, schools, it makes you appreciate and come closer together as a community with real concern for each other. And living more in harmony. There is very much a closeness that isn't there in a larger urban or suburban or metropolitan area. You become a part of, especially having been a school teacher in a small town, marriages, funerals, disasters as well as family reunions, news of students and their families and it is a nice, safe feeling to have others care about what happens to you and vice versa. It makes you feel connected."
