Staff Snowpocalypse sledding trip

Snowpocalypse Sledding - Vanessa and Katherine

Who was crazy enough to go sledding down Cascades Hill during the blizzard of 2011?

A small group of American 1 employees, that’s who.

And unlike a lot of places in town, our branches are still open to serve our members on Wednesday, Feb. 2.

News from the August car sale

August Sale - Sunny lot

Check out pictures from our August car sale at the Jackson County Fairgrounds. For once, the weather cooperated and we had a nice weekend.

August Sale - Karen Baker

Also, congratulations to Karen Baker of Jackson – our $1,000 shopping spree winner from the sale. Karen purchased a Chevy Impala at the sale (“It rides like a dream,” she says), and opted for $500 in Walmart gift cards, $250 in Jackson Crossing gift cards, and $250 to the Westwood Mall.

American 1’s classic car photo contest

If you fancy yourself a classic car collector, or just have fond memories of that ’57 Chevy you used to cruise down Michigan Ave., we want to see what kind of classic car you had or have.

We’re offering a full car detail package for one random photo. To enter to win, simply e-mail us, or drop off a copy at any branch, a photo of you and your classic car along with:

  • Your name and place of residence
  • Which classic car is in the photo
  • The story behind your classic car

We’ll post all the entries to this blog post and then draw a winner at the end of September.

What defines a classic car? We’re not picky. And it doesn’t have to be a photo from the year you first got it. If you take your classic hot rod down to Jackson’s Cruise Night, you can snap a photo from today and share that. The only stipulation is the car in the photo has to be a generally-defined classic car.

In the news: Chelsea Kids’ Fest

Hillsdale Kids' Fest - Got Milk?

After our first try at Hillsdale’s Kids’ Fest in June, this week’s re-do went pretty well despite a bit of rain during the afternoon.

Check out our pictures from the August 4 version of Kids’ Fest at the Hillsdale County Fairgrounds. And thanks to everyone who joined us for the rain date event.

Rose Parade 2010 photos

Rose Parade 2010 - Lumen Christi

We just posted photos from this past weekend’s Rose Parade and Party in the Park.

The weather, luckily, behaved, and the Jackson Citizen Patriot reports that 12,500 people came out to see Jackson’s annual parade.

Thanks to everyone who came out to see the parade. And we hope you enjoyed the new All-American Lumberjack Show at the Party in the Park!
