Harrison, Michigan is a small town found in mid-Michigan. But the community is absolutely amazing. It's almost as if we're all family in a way. Yes, there's the small town drama and gossip, and yes not everyone likes each other. But we always have each other's back, and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

I like Harrison for the fact it's a small community, that has pride. It's constantly trying to improve itself and it's members. I would like to see more involvement from the public, especially younger kids. Maybe a community garden or something to bring us out together.
I have lived in Harrison for the past 10 years. It is considered a resort town. We have 20 lakes in 20 minutes. A person can have fun in all seasons.
