The Town of Tecumseh, along with the Optimist Club of St. Clair Beach and the Tecumseh Community Policing Committe are holding an open house to engage the community and discuss ways to reduce negative and unsafe behaviours at public events such as the fireworks.

“The Optimist Club of St. Clair Beach is a very active service group in our community and hosts several events each year and unfortunately at last year’s fireworks event there were some incidents involving unwelcome behaviour ” said Gary McNamara, Mayor of Tecumseh. “We are working with the Optimist Club to address these issues together to ensure that community events such as this can proceed into the future”.

“The members of the Optimist Club are proud to serve the community through the various events and fundraisers we coordinate throughout the year,” said Richard Zarour, President of the Optimist Club of St. Clair Beach. “Following last year’s event, we have been working closely with the Town and the OPP to incorporate additional safety measures at this year’s fireworks event to ensure it will be a fun and safe evening for all to enjoy”.

It takes place at the Tecumseh Recreation Complex and Arena on Wednesday, March 4th, 2020 from 6pm to 8pm.

The 43rd annual fireworks event is scheduled Saturday, May 16th at the Optimist Park in Tecumseh. The public information consultation will share details on last year’s event and discuss matters related to this year’s event.
