Back to School Bash/Movie Night in the Park
Tecumseh Chamber of Commerce hosted a free “Movie Night in the Park” for the Tecumseh Community. The movie was an end to the a very successful “Back to School Bash”. Tecumseh Chamber of Commerce partnered with Mission Tecumseh for their 3rd annual back to school bash. Each year it has grown. The first year they distributed 200 backpacks, last year they gave away 400 backpacks and this year they were able to give away 530 backpacks. Families were blessed Saturday by the kindness of the hearts of many. Lang Bartmess joined in this year and added a gospel singing and gave away free watermelon. Some of our local fire fighters came out and volunteered to cook all 720 hotdogs that were donated, oh and they also brought along “hoser” the clown to entertain while they cooked. The movie night was sponsored by Tinker Federal Credit Union, Arvest Bank, Banc First, and Canadian Valley Electric. Other sponsors were Gilbert and Sons Trucking, Tecumseh Tag Agency, McDonalds, First United Bank, Bar-S, Waller Ice and Citizen Potawatomi Nation including, Firelake Express, Firelake Discount Foods, and Firelake Design. We are truly grateful for all the sponsors and the help that we received. Thank you for allowing us to serve the community of Tecumseh.
