The Jackson County Cruisers are busy preparing for their annual car show scheduled for June 15 at the VFW Fairgrounds. The car show will begin at 8 a.m. and will end at 12:30 p.m. The event is free for spectators.

The event will have some neat cars, a swap meet, car corral, cornhole tournament, 50-50 drawing, silent auction and food vendors. Club members have been busy seeking sponsorships from local businesses. All businesses that have made contributions will have their company logo displayed on a sponsorship board.

The Jackson County Cruisers are also going to be back at the square for their monthly cruise-in. These cruise-ins are scheduled for the first Saturday of every month through the month of October.

The cruise ins will start at 5 p.m. and will end at 7 p.m. Members of the Jackson County Cruisers said this move supports the ongoing tourism efforts promoted by the city of Scottsboro. The Jackson County Cruisers are also promoting their Backpacks for Kids program with raffles and 50-50 drawings.

Backpacks for Kids is a tax deductible, non-profit charity that raises money to buy food Jackson County school children in need. The Jackson County Cruisers car club raises money, purchases food and delivers the food to Jackson County schools for the administrators to distribute.

All are invited and encouraged to participate in these Jackson County Cruisers events. Cruisers members say the cars are great to see, the owners and spectators are fun to mingle with, and people in attendance would be supporting the community and a very worthy charity.
