The 5th Annual Jackson Road Cruise is a celebration of our automotive heritage, featuring a parade of more than 800 cars with checkpoints at each of the businesses along Scio Township’s Jackson Road. This stretch of roadway represents the old trail from the wagon wheel days route from Detroit to Chicago. “The Boulevard”, as Jackson Road is often called, has been developed over the last twenty years and is now complete for a full 7 miles of four lanes with a beautiful landscaped boulevard. It has the greatest concentration of Auto Dealers in this “Motor Mile” in Michigan. Suburban Chevrolet Cadillac at Jackson & Wagner Roads hosted The Lucy Ann Lance Show during the Cruise and we had a great time!

Jaci Nichols, Humane Society of Huron Valley , along with Dean Erskine – Our Pet of the Week is Glen Coco, who is a stitch! He’s a typical Siamese who will find just about anything to keep him amused. He loves getting into bags to see what’s in them (especially if kitten food is involved). He loves to play and we’re questioning if he’s really 12-years-old because he acts like a much younger cat. He likes other cats and could be with a buddy, in fact would probably enjoy cat company. Especially a playful, fun-loving one. He would love a interesting and active family who wants to spend time with this playful guy! Listen to this week’s interview at the link below for more info about Glen Coco and many other animals waiting for their forever homes who are available from the Humane Society of Huron Valley.
