There are a lot of people working to make Macomb County a great place to live and work. That was evident by the crowd of people who turned out for Advancing Macomb’s annual breakfast meeting held at Lake St. Clair Metropark.
Between the collision shops, machine supply outlets, used auto sales and vacant lots at Utica Road and Gratiot in Roseville, a bit of history lingers beneath the surface. You can see it in the bright yellow awning of the 68-year-old Chester Boot Shop, the green-and-cream 1927 Art Deco Roseville Theater, and the quaint tea room at Just Delicious Scones.
Advancing Macomb, a civic leadership group, is in the process of hosting its inaugural East Side Bike Drive to collect gently used bicycles for families in need. The weeklong Shelby Township bike drive kicked off Saturday, Oct. 29, and will conclude Nov. 6.
The spring season of 2017 might bring out hundreds of new bikers. That’s the intention of nonprofit Advancing Macomb and surrounding communities that are participating in the first year of the Eastside Bike Drive.
