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.
Exploring Our Hometown Together
One of the best things to come out of this weird and crazy year has been having fewer activities and more time together with our families – and finding new ways to spend time together. We’ve gone away from frequenting overpopulated destinations and restaurants, sticking closer to home for family fun and food.
Whether it’s been exploring one of Jackson’s many parks and playgrounds, wandering down a trail to enjoy the colors of fall, or trying out one of the best local restaurants in Jackson, we’ve enjoyed the slower pace of life and have tried to make amazing memories as we’ve looked for ways to join in Jackson.
We’ve even taken our quarantine-puppy out to explore some of the pet-friendly places around Jackson County!
What have been your favorite new discoveries around Jackson this year?
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…
- Helping Jackson is raising funds and taking donations for the 2020 Community Turkey Drive to benefit needy families in our community.
- When Cascades Humane Society released a video asking for the public’s help in identifying someone stealing returnables, a community member recognize the individual when returning cans at Meijer, and the individual was apprehended by the police.
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!
