Are You In? North American International Auto Show Just Around the Corner

Berkley Patch will give you the scoop on hours, parking and what's new this year but, first, we want to know who from Berkley and Huntington Woods will participate in the big event.

The crown jewel in Detroit's calendar, the North American International Auto Show, kicks off next week and Berkley Patch wants to hear from Berkley and Huntington Woods residents who will be participating.

We already know that NAIAS Executive Director Rod Alberts is a former Berkley resident (stay tuned Monday for our chat with him!) and we'd like to hear from anyone else in the community who is involved.

Perhaps you helped design one of the vehicles, as ? Maybe you know a student whose artwork will be part of the show like that of ? Or, perhaps you have snagged much-coveted tickets to the charity preview?

We want to hear about it! E-mail Berkley Patch Editor Leslie Ellis at leslie.ellis@patch.com to share your story. Stay tuned next week for a complete visitors' guide to the show – and feel free to drop us a line and let us know what you'd like to know before you go!
