Winning raffle ticket takes local assessor up, up and away

Amanda Lacelle (pictured at right), assessor for the City of Tecumseh, took to the air Tuesday evening from the Church of the Nazarene on N. Union Street.

Lacelle won a balloon ride in a raffle last summer at a benefit for the Catholic Charities of Jackson, Lenawee and Hillsdale Counties.

Friends, family and co-workers from City Hall were on hand for the lift off. Lacelle, and friend Mary Ellen Loar, rode with Tom Bergron, pilot with Aloft, of Mason, Mich.

The balloon ride ended in a field near Sutton Road, after a brief touchdown at Mitchell Park.

“I really liked the ride,” Lacelle said, noting how “organized and peaceful” Tecumseh looked from the air.
