Letter to the Editor: Young Professionals thank community

The Young Professionals of Greater Dowagiac would like to thank all those who made the Third Annual Mommy and Son Event a success. Community members enjoyed a fun afternoon of football and fun with games, music, treats and special guest appearances.

Thank you to Dowagiac Union Schools Superintendent Paul Hartsig, the Dowagiac Middle School for hosting and their custodial staff. The Dowagiac District Library for print services. The Bakers Rhapsody and Bakeman Barbers for selling tickets. Wood Fire Trattoria, Zekes Restaurant, Round Oak Revisited, Pizza Hut, Lindy’s Restaurant, and Sister Lakes Brewing Company for their dinner deals that could be enjoyed after the event.

We also appreciate donations by Tru Entertainment, Blue Print Photography, Image, Grabemeyer Farms and Vite Greenhouses. As well as Miss Dowagiac, her royal court and members of the High School Football team for making special guest appearances and interacting with all the attendees.
