Chelsea Community Foundation and Chelsea Education Foundation are recognizing Chelsea’s 1971 State Champion football team and the 2000 and 2001 undefeated football teams at homecoming on Sept. 24.
The two foundations will be sharing a tent at the game providing cider, donuts and a warm welcome to alumni, supporters, and future supporters of their respective missions. All members of the team will be admitted to the game free of charge and will be honored on the field during the game.
Chelsea Community Foundation (CCF) has been providing support to Chelsea nonprofits since 1995. CCF recently provided a grant to Chelsea Education Foundation (CEF) to collect contact info for Chelsea alumni as a vital component to developing a donor database and future alumni association.
Anne Mann, CCF president, Lynn Fox, CEF president and Mike Kapolka, Chelsea High School principal invite everyone to stop by the tent before and during the homecoming game to learn more about what both foundations do for the Chelsea School District community.
Guests can enjoy cider and donuts donated by The Dexter Cider Mill owners Marty and Nancy Steinhauer, Chelsea alumni.
Both foundations send a big thank you to the Athletic Department and Brad Bush, athletic director and assistant principal, for incorporating the event into the homecoming celebration, helping set up the tent, and welcoming them to the homecoming festivities.
