Clare has a rich history that goes back much further than my memories recall. In the 1800's it was busting with railroad activity. My grandpa was a farmer, and my ancestors were Amish, so I have been attending Amish events and frequenting Amish owned businesses since I can remember. I even remember attending concerts at the Clare County Fairgrounds, I got Willie Nelson's autograph there when I was 10 years old.
