Generosity is noticed

I would like to take a moment to tell people what a beautiful community we live in.

My family and I attended the Traverse City first annual Patriot Game between Traverse City West and Central high schools. What a tremendous turnout our town gave to our veterans and fallen heros.

I could not have been more proud of our city and surrounding areas that had come in support of this game.

I appreciate the two coaches from our high schools, Tim Wooer and Tom Passinault, for helping to teach our young men about community awareness, working together for all, and that in the end we will all still have each other no matter who wins the game.

A big kudo goes to all who purchased T-shirts for Operation American Soldier.

Your generosity has not gone unnoticed.
