I have lived in Hanover Township for my entire life as well as my parents and grandfathers. It is a great community well sought out by many people to live here. Schools are great and the township offers many recreational amenities for all ages. My Grandfather was born and raised in Hanover he was a police officer for 36 years here and that makes me very proud. This town has grown from a small mill town to a great suburban town with parks and fields to play and to raise families. We also have big companies here like Bayer and Tiffany which keeps taxes low and supplies jobs for many people. Many friends parents are long time residents of Hanover. Religously there are all different places to worship.

I like that it is a small town where you get to know many people. I would like the school systems to be reformed because children tend to dread attending school due to the teachers and harassment from other students arising from gossip spreading due to the small town feel. I like how involved the fire department is with the residents and how many community events such as fireworks and summer concerts we have.
This area is safe and nice, just very boring. There is not that much to do here and it is just sort of your average suburban area. It is, however, connected to everything, which is nice.
