When you understand that community is everything, celebrating your milestones tends to be more about everyone else rather than yourself. With a mantra like that, it's no surprise one of Grand Blanc's most loved businesses is marking another year in the area by giving back to others.

Great Harvest Bread Co. Grand Blanc is marking 21 years this month, and they're not just celebrating with cake and balloons. Nope, they're doing something even sweeter - giving back to the community that's been their heartbeat for two glorious decades and counting. No strangers to stepping up when anyone or any organization is in need, owner Scott Sassack and his father Bob are opting to skip the fanfare and celebrate by doing what they do best...paying it forward.

A Nostalgic Look Back at Flint's Safetyville

If you grew up in the Flint area back in the late 60s to early 80s, there is a good chance your first time behind the wheel was on the streets of Safetyville. Safetyville was a miniature cityscape designed to teach kids the rules of the road and lessons in safety in a fun atmosphere. The pint-size city featured sidewalks, roads, miniature buildings, street signs, signals, and small electrically-powered cars.
