Save the Tecumseh SS Totem Pole!

The Tecumseh Secondary School Alumni Reunion Committee was dismayed to learn that the Lambton-Kent District School Board is planning a renovation which could possibly see their iconic Totem Pole permanently removed from the Tecumseh Public School on McNaughton Avenue in Chatham.

The Tecumseh Secondary School Alumni Reunion Committee will be presenting their views and a petition at tonights Transition Committee meeting at the Tecumseh Public School at 6:30 , where they would like you to stop by and show your support!

The Totem was designed and crafted in house by 4 of our students and dedicated in 1972 when Tecumseh was a high school, where it has remained a fixture for over 45 years.

An online petition has been setup and has over 830 of the 1,000 signatures needed!

The “Lemon Face Challenge” is the newest dare raising money to fight a type of brain cancer called DIPG.

DIPG is a type of brain cancer that attacks the brain stem and it tends to affect little kids.

Taking part in the challenge is easy, all you have to do is record your reaction while eating a lemon wedge and then challenge someone else to do it, then don’t forget to donate to a group called ‘Aubreigh’s Army’.

Aubreigh Nicholas, an 11-year-old in Alabama, was diagnosed with DIPG last September… She started the challenge by daring Alabama football coach Nick Saban to do it.

Saban accepted the challenge and posted a video last Thursday.

You can find out more about the Lemon Face Challenge on the Aubreigh’s Army Facebook page.

You can donate by searching for Aubreigh’s Army on YouCaring.com.
