Welcome to Tecumseh Life
Stories by Anna Cabrera Cristofaro
Special to The Star
I
n its own little corner of the country,
nestled against Lake St. Clair, lies the
town of Tecumseh, a charming hub of
quaint shops, recreational centres, fantastic restaurants and picturesque homes
large and small. Its allure is in its own
leisurely clock; it’s at once a bucolic and
urban space where attractions are plenty.
In 2014, the Town of Tecumseh was
recognized by Festivals and Events Ontario as the province’s “Best Festival
City” for a town with a population of
fewer than 200,000, thanks to the enthusiasm and dedication of a throng of
volunteers who are excited to share their
town with visitors and residents alike.
This year, eager to maintain its reputation as a festival mecca, the town of Tecumseh will be hosting the Victoria Day
Weekend Fireworks, the Parking Lot (3
on 3 road hockey tournament) Battle, the
Fishing Derby at Lakewood Park, a Taste
of Tecumseh Food and Wine Festival, Go
Skateboarding Day, the Tecumseh Terry
Fox Run, the Hospice Triathlon, the 2nd
Annual Skateboarding Competition, the
2nd Annual Disc Golf Tournament, the
40th Annual Tecumseh Corn Festival and
the International Dragon Boat Festival.
Much of the town’s population is active, and the numerous sports fields,
tennis courts, skate park and pickleball
courts are often used. Its acclaimed dog
park features a unique dog water fountain, many benches and accessible asphalt trails that curve throughout 2.5
acres of land.
Those who love music too are endeared to the town, which proudly hosts
a series of free community concerts that
draw in crowds from around the region.
From Sunday, June 7 to Saturday, September 5, music enthusiasts can enjoy a
variety of sounds from local and visiting
musicians, including flautist Jeff Kearns,
acoustic guitarist Dale Butler, rockers
Justin Zuccato and Band and Elvis tribute artists Norm Sr., Norm Jr. and Jax of
the Ackland family.

Cinema with community heart
O
n any given night – and especially
on Tuesday evenings – throngs of
avid moviegoers pour into Imagine Cinemas in Lakeshore, eager to take in the
sights and sounds of Hollywood.
For general manager Gina Facca, the
theatre is a sort of second home, a space
which welcomes corporations, families
and visitors who are not only fans of the
silver screen, but those looking for an alternative to traditional banquet halls.
“We’ve set ourselves apart, because
not only are we independently and locally
owned and operated, our customers will
tell you we’re different,” she says confidently. “If you ask our customers, they
would tell you it’s our service and the
cleanliness of our cinemas, not to mention
the entire atmosphere.
“There’s a reason we’ve branded across
the area – we have Lakeshore, Leamington, Kitchener and Timmins, all operating
under the Imagine brand. And there are
three more (theatres) planned into 2016.”
With approximately 1,850 seats, Lakeshore serves as Imagine’s headquarters.
Facca says they’ve cornered the market
in terms of field trips and school functions, and have extended their reach into
corporate territory. Businesses often book
Lakeshore for town halls and training
sessions, or will book a theatre for an

evening for a fun night out for employees.
“One of our greatest strengths is our accessibility,” says Facca. “Whenever you
call us, you get a live person. You get a local person. You’re not stuck in voicemail
jail, and you’re not having to call Toronto
or another out-of-town corporate office.
We are very hands-on.”
Families in particular benefit from
Lakeshore’s kid-friendly atmosphere and
competitive concession prices. Throughout March and summer breaks, the theatre
often offers $3 children’s movies during
matinee show times. “We try to bring
kids’ movies back when there aren’t a lot
of new children’s releases out,” explains
Facca, “and it’s very successful.
“We’re sold out almost every day, every movie.”
Lakeshore Cinemas also promotes independent movies from local and national
filmmakers; Gavin Booth’s The Scarehouse premiered here, and The Birder
found great success with audiences here.
“There’s something to be said about independent filmmakers being given opportunity for exposure at a locally owned
operation,” says Facca. “We’re very
supportive of (independent filmmakers)
whenever we can be.”

of the many artifacts
preserved in the
Tecumseh Historical
Archives.
F
Tecumseh
Historical
Archives
or those with a curiosity in this town’s
illustrious history, there is now an extensive archival system that unveils hundreds of handwritten deeds, artifacts and
photographs that go back to the mid-19th
century.
The new Tecumseh Historical Archives was a labour of love by a team
of local researchers who spent nearly a
year exploring Tecumseh’s history. Led
by project manager Stephen Young, artifacts, newspapers, photographs and documents were compiled and archived in an
effort to preserve the stories of the town.
Included in the archives is 40 years of
documents and images from the Tecumseh Corn Festival, as well as every issue
of the Tecumseh Tribune, which was distributed throughout the town from 1959
until 2012. A myriad of artifacts, including household goods, military, police and
fire items from throughout Tecumseh,
Maidstone, St. Clair Beach and Sandwich South, have also been catalogued.
In total, over 1,500 artifacts have been
collected, researched and photographed.
A joint project of the town of Tecumseh, the Tecumseh Area Historical Society and Employment Ontario, with assistance from the University of Windsor’s
Leddy Library, the development of the
online archive was a job creation partnership, which offered invaluable training
opportunities for those who participated.
Tecumseh CAO Tony Hadded told The
Windsor Star that the project enhanced
“the quality of historic data and material
that is available to residents and businesses and researchers… wanting to learn
more about the town and activities related
to events that have taken place in town.”
The Tecumseh Historical Archives
can be accessed through the University
of Windsor’s Leddy Library website,
through the County of Essex or online at:

When Gerry Orum and Beth Noakes
founded this fundraising event nearly a
decade and a half ago, they had hopes it
would receive significant support from the
community, but never dreamed it would
have this kind of monumental success.
Noakes, who owned Top Drawer Casuals, “wanted to give back to her clientele,” explains Orum, “(who) were mostly
women. French Dressing Jeans, one of

her clients, was talking about bringing
in an event somewhere, and we added a
fundraising component, which had one
mandate – all money raised had to stay in
Windsor-Essex.”
This year, on July 18 and 19, the boats
will be off to the races again, with all
paddlers meeting on Riverside Dr. at the
foot of Manning. Orum says he anticipates 70 to 80 groups will participate.
Some Dragon Boaters in festive costumes and the
fabulous dragon sculpture at Lakewood Park where
the annual races are held.
“It’s been very rewarding,” says
Orum. “Beth and I recognize we’ve been
the captains of the ship, but it’s the people and the companies and the sponsors
who are the real heroes of what this event
is. Beth and I are so pleased we can say
that and love that we have met our commitment that money stays here. You can
call the hospital and find out what we’re
about. We’ve done that because we want
people to understand what this event is
about and where your dollars are going.”

The Dragon Boat Legend
Tecumseh Life • Spring 2015
The Dragon Boat Races are
the most popular early summer activity in the Orient,
whereever Chinese cultural
influences prevails. It is the
most important part of the
Twan-Wu Festival, the 5th
day of the 5th month of the
lunar calendar.
According to legend, during the Warring States period, 475-222 B.C., the state
of Chu had a high-ranking
minister of great talent and
genius named Chu Yuan. To
the west, the state of Chin
was determined to seize the
state of Chu.
For this reason, feigning a
desire for friendly diplomatic
ties, the state of Chin invited
King Huai to Wukuan, to draw
up a treaty. King Huai did not
heed Chu Yuan’s cautionary
advice and consequently was
kidnapped by Chin soldiers
and died in the state of Chin.
King Huai’s eldest son, King
Hsiang, not only failed to
consider avenging his father
but also acted obsequiously
toward the state of Chin. In
addition, he believed a slan-
der advanced against Chu
Yuan and banished him.
On the 5th day of the 5th
month of the lunar calendar,
Chu Yuan reached the bank
of the Mi Luo River. There,
the wise, sad hero committed suicide and threw himself
in the river. When the people
heard this, they feared the
fish in the river would eat
Chu Yuan’s body.
Thronging into boats, they
rowed out to the middle of
the river and threw great
quantities of rice into the
water to feed the fish, thus
hoping that Chu Yuan’s
body would be left alone.
The search for his body was
evolved into present day
dragon boat races and the
ritual of eating “Tsung Tze”,
sticky rice cakes wrapped in
bamboo leaves. The TwanWu Festival also signals the
change from spring to summer and can be traced back
to the Chou Dynasty as a folk
festival.
In the distant past, farmers depended solely on the
rain to water their crops.
13
On this festival day, farmers prayed for the “Dragons
on the Clouds” to send him
rain. They also prayed for
the “Dragon of the Seas” to
calm the oceans and rivers as
floods were common when
the mountain snow began to
melt. Above the doors of the
houses, they hung up long,
sword like leaves of the water willow and mallow to disperse evil spirits.
Siung-Huan Powder, arsenic
sulphide, was used as a pesticide around the house. The
red powder was also used to
touch the foreheads of boys
and give them protective
powers. In Japan, Twan-Wu
became boy’s day, which appears to be connected to this
ancient ritual.
Through the ages, many
stories and fairy tales have
evolved about this special
day, but none surpasses the
excitement and fun of the
dragon boat races.

tion of golf clubs and holes, instead utilizing
discs and a disc pole hole, which is a pole that extends from the ground
with a basket and chains where the disc can land. Players try to complete each hole with the fewest amount of throws, starting at the first of
nine or 18 holes; the player with the lowest total cumulative score wins.
For Scott White, president and co-founder of Windsor Essex Disc
Golf, there is no better game.
Tecumseh Life • Spring 2015
“It’s been a lifelong sport for me; I’ve been
playing since I was about 16 and now I’m 35,”
says White, who grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where the game has been popular since
the late 80s. “Even though I’ve been playing
for a long time, I can still get better at it. It’s
one of those sports that there’s no ceiling –
there are always things you can work on.”
White says that at first for many, the game
seems like an afterthought, or one that’s not
taken very seriously. “People think, ‘Oh yeah,
that sounds like fun – golf with a Frisbee,’” he
says. “But it has a long lasting effect on you,
and when you have that first good shot, it’s addictive, and it makes you want to play more
and more.”
White explains that it’s a slow-paced game,
one that’s placed with a group of four or six.
Currently, the members of Windsor Essex Disc
Golf play at Lakewood Park, with the hope of
having their own official course someday.
“There are probably 400 courses (throughout the state of Michigan) and there isn’t a single course in our area,” explains White. “We

want to change that.”
For now, the game is growing. It’s a volunteer-driven sport, and the costs to join are
minimal. It’s free to play, but for $30, new
members will receive membership, a towel
and a disc.
“For those who don’t have five or six hours
to play a round of golf but who still want to be
outdoors, relax and have a great time walking
from hole to hole, this is a great idea,” says
White. “It’s no less challenging. It really gets
you hooked. There’s nothing quite like it.”

Town of Tecumseh is excited to be a part

200-meter relay segment.
The torch will be carried

15,000 kilometers by air. More than 130
communities will see the torch lit, which
stands 65 centimeters high and weighs
1.2 kg. The torch can burn for 10 to 12
minutes at a time, withstanding winds of
up to 70 kilometers per hour.
