To the Editor,
We wanted to write this letter to let everyone know how truly blessed we are with caring individuals and wonderful families in this community.
During this past weekend, the Tecumseh Wrestling Club hosted a regional wrestling tournament. This tournament included wrestling clubs from over 20 different areas in southeastern Michigan. The event was held at the Tecumseh High School, and there were approximately 300 wrestling participants at this event. As the Wrestling Club is not sponsored by Tecumseh athletics, all of the planning, set-up, running of the tournament and tear-down was 100 percent the responsibility of the Wrestling Club and their “willing volunteers.”
These volunteers consist of wrestlers parents, grandparents, friends, and countless others. We wish to extend our thanks and gratitude to those who have continuously aided in the moving of wrestling mats from the middle school to the high school, setting up mats and tables at the high school for the event, working at the scoring tables, working at the pairing tables, working at the concession stand and admissions tables, selling t-shirts, feeding the workers and doing all of this (and more) with smiles and positive attitudes. These positive attitudes resonated through the entire season and the parents (and family members) of our wrestlers are, without doubt, the best group that any coaches could ask for. Their dedication to their children and this club are what have made the Tecumseh Wrestling Club such a success throughout the 2008/2009 season.
Beyond the parents and volunteers we would like thank several other groups and businesses within Tecumseh that assisted in making our event a success.
