A local Tecumseh family, Rick and Diana Ruhl, recently made a generous $10,000 donation to Tecumseh Center for the Arts (TCA) in memory of Rick’s parents Harold and Jean Ruhl to go toward the renovation of the theater’s Coat Room and sound system located in the theater lobby.
The lobby sound system was damaged several years ago from a water leak prior to the roof being replaced during the 2017-2018 season. The theater lobby has been without a functioning sound system for the past four years. The sound system is stored in the Coat Room just off the TCA lobby, will also be renovated. Currently the Coat Room functions more as a storage room then a functioning Coat Room.
“Thanks to the Ruhl family’s support and passion for Tecumseh Center for the Arts, we will begin making updates to the Coat Room during the winter months,” stated TCA Director Kelly Jo Gilmore. “We want to update the room, add counter space, replace the damaged sound system and ceiling tiles so we can begin using it as a functioning Coat Room once again for theater patrons.”
Tecumseh Center for the Arts is excited to move forward with this project and is grateful for the contribution of the Ruhl Family and their generosity to the Tecumseh community.
