KALAMAZOO, Mich. – As we have said so many times in our blog, Kalamazoo is a unique city. In actuality it is a mid sized city, but when living here you get a mixture of small town benefits and bi city advantages. For example, a while ago I made a fairly large deposit into my local credit union and wrote a check of approximately the same amount at the same credit union. Later in the day I got a call from the credit union. “Mrs Veenstra, we see that you put money into account X but you wrote a check for nearly the same amount out of account Y. Did you mean to deposit the check into account Y? If you did I can correct that mistake.” “Actually, yes, that is what I meant to do. Thanks so much for catching that and calling me before the check bounced! ” That is small town living.
Yet, Miller Auditorium plays hosts to some of the biggest Broadway musicals and there are great places to eat and shop. That is big city living.
Well, here is another example which was even recognized by the USAToday! Here is the start to an article that you will want to follow the link to read!
