Drummond Island - like most U.P. towns - is a community that you can feel part of. A place where you can count on your neighbor and where you can walk into the store and you know the people you see and are known by them. On a first name basis.
That doesn't exist everywhere any more. It's dead. It's gone. And this is tragic.
And that's the way it should be.
Small towns fill in the gaps in your life that you hadn't known existed.
The nice part about living in a small town is that when you don't know what you're doing, someone else does.
