Small-town Life in Ossineke, Michigan (Population 938)

Alpena, Michigan

Story Narrative:

"Favorite memory of living in a small town?"

"My favorite memory of living in a small town is that I moved there from Detroit to a town called Ossineke, Michigan. My parents bought the town bar. I married and raised five children there. I also worked at the Sanborn Elementary School for 25 years. Many years of those, I was the librarian, which was an awesome job. I loved to read and loved to encourage children to read, other people to read. Being in a small town community, people get together and help each other out in times of need. There's just nothing like living in a small town, and I wouldn't change it for anything."
