I like that the people in town are nice, but the people who are your employers are not nice at all. The employers at some places are just rude and don't care about you at all. The people in the town are very nice, kind, and are easy to get to know.

Clare is a small, spread out town with farm and Amish communities surrounding it. I've lived there for three years now and I love that it's not a big city. The woods are everywhere, and it's great that you can travel a short distance to see beautiful nature everywhere.
Clare is my hometown, I've grown up here and I love it. Everyone is truly a part of the community. I go to high school in Clare and not only do the teachers actually care and help you grow as a student, but you grow as a person too. We have amazing teachers, coaches, and neighbors. Our local businesses help each other out and work together to make Clare a welcoming place because we take pride in our community.
