Each week, we work hard to bring you the best events happening in Jackson County this week along with some good news and our top picks of things to do in Jackson MI this weekend.
PUMPKIN OR APPLE??
I was eating lunch at the Metropolitan Ice Cream Co. in downtown Jackson last week when they added the first carton of Pumpkin Pie ice cream to their cooler, and while I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin-flavored treats, I have to admit that I did enjoy the sample I was handed to try… in fact, I could see myself ordering a scoop or two if I hadn’t been full from the amazing burger and ranch-seasoned fries I’d just devoured.
As I continued to browse their ice cream options, I discovered another favorite fall flavor: Country Apple. And then I found myself wondering which fall flavor people prefer…
P.S. If you haven’t made your way to one of Jackson County’s orchards or farms yet this season, there’s still time! Be sure to enjoy some of the local flavors of fall and support our local small businesses in the process.
See Good + Do Good
That’s our challenge to ourselves and to Jackson County. Here is an example of doing good we’ve seen recently…
- #HelpingJackson is doing a Community Turkey Drive to help provide a quality Thanksgiving Dinner for families in our community.
- YPOP (Young People of Purpose) is empowering youth to succeed through art, business, culture, and service. Diane Washington and her team of volunteers are relentless in their pursuit to help create opportunities for all youth in our community!
Hearing about our neighbors showing up for each other in Jackson County makes our hearts happy. Way to “Join In Jackson” and be a part of this amazing community we call home!
