Finding a Silver Lining

Has anyone else been exploring new-to-you areas of Jackson this fall thanks to the many road construction projects happening throughout Jackson County?

As I took yet another detour this week thanks to those orange barrels and “Road Closed” signs,  I found myself driving down a road I’d never traveled before. Instead of grumbling about the alternate route, I found myself choosing gratitude for the discovery of a new-to-me part of Jackson County.

Now, I’m ready for construction season to end as much as the next Jacksonian, but I’m going to enjoy the “silver linings” and make some new discoveries in the meantime.

What “new” parts of Jackson County have construction zones helped you to discover recently?

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…

  • The Hub Teen Center is currently taking applications for the 2020-2021 school year for its Hub Mom program. This program provides childcare for teen moms while they complete their schooling online using the on-site computer lab.
  • K105.3 is celebrating National Make a Difference Day with a winter coat drive on October 24th. Drop off gently used or new coats and winter apparel at Legacy Dry Cleaner. Donations will be distributed to area shelters in need.

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!
