I loved growing up in Chippewa County. It was family friendly and had a safe feeling to it. There is a lot of outdoor activities to be had including an outdoor pool and local zoo. The school systems have diversity in classes and course work which gives a person a well rounded education.
I love the small town feel. And the county responded quickly and kindly to concerns if its citizens. I would like to see more assistance for mental illness on our town though.
