Thanks for support
To the Editor:
The students in Grosse Pointe are so fortunate to have so many generous benefactors willing to support their school's fundraising efforts.
Once again, a great group of supporters rallied to help make the 4th Annual Golf Outing sponsored by the PTO at Pierce Middle School at Sycamore Hills Golf Club a success.
Although the weather on Oct. 2 started out cool and damp, the event still went on for the die-hard golfers. With the help of the businesses and individuals in Grosse Pointe and in the surrounding communities, the PTO raised funds which will allow us to continue in our mission to improve the learning environment and well-being of the students at Pierce Middle School.
Congratulations to the winning team of Walt Fitzpatrick, Bob Kelly and Ron Wardie who shot 8 under par that day! What an accomplishment considering the adverse weather conditions that day.
