Featuring: Dr. Jeremy Hughes,

Plymouth-Canton Community Schools
Networking . Breakfast . Speaker

Our School district is one of the major factors that contribute to the fantastic quality of life we enjoy in the Plymouth Community. There has been a major amount of controversy around the lack of cohesion among the school board members that led to the dismissal of the previous superintendent, how to handle the district’s finances and the election of four new members. To help guide the district, Dr. Jeremy Hughes was brought in on an interim basis to lead the schools through this turbulent period.

Dr. Hughes has agreed to stay until June of 2013 to see the process through. He will discuss with us the plans being considered to improve the district and maintain our status as a premier district for producing outstanding students. He will also be touching on the challenges all educators face in today’s climate and how we must keep focused on advancing the level of education districts provide.

Dr. Hughes has served in all levels of education including extended stints as the Superintendent in two Michigan school districts. He also concluded his career working at the Michigan Department of Education for five years.

To RSVP, please respond no later than December 5 to or call 734-453-1540. The breakfast will be from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. and the cost is just $12. Food will be served from 7:45-8:15.

Cancellations must be received 48 hours prior to the event, since the Chamber is liable for all meals.

The event will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn at 14600 Sheldon Rd. The hotel is located just north of the M-14 exit.

Whalers Host Blood Drive and $5 Fridays, Then Teddy Bear Toss on Saturday

The first-place Plymouth Whalers (17-8-2-1) spend the next two weekends at home, starting Friday against Sault Ste. Marie (14-11-1-1) and Saturday against Guelph (12-9-1-3). Both games start at 7:05 p.m. at Compuware Arena.


Each game will be broadcast on WSDP-FM (88.1) starting at 6:45 p.m. on both evenings.

Besides the action on the ice, they’ll be plenty of activities around the arena on both evenings.

From noon-6 p.m. on Friday, the Whalers are hosting a blood drive in conjunction with the American Red Cross. Although some fans have booked appointments between noon and 2 p.m., there are plenty of appointments available from 2-5 p.m.


Anyone attempting to give blood will receive two tickets for an upcoming Whalers game.

Fans can book an appointment using this link.


The goal is to break the Whalers’ blood drive record of 48 pints.


Friday is another $5 Fridays night, sponsored by WYCD-FM (99.5). More people increasingly are taking advantage of $5 Fridays as the season wears on.


On Saturday, Plymouth host Guelph in the Whalers annual Teddy Bear Toss. Fans are cordially requested to bring a teddy bear or stuffed animal to the game.


The first time the Whalers score on Saturday – and Alex Aleardi scored a little over three minutes into the Teddy Bear game against London last season – throw the bear on the ice, and with the help of the Plymouth Community United Way, homes will be found for the animals.


As they have in past years, the Whalers Booster Club will be selling teddy bears before the game.

Next week, the Whalers host Belleville (17-9-0-0) on Friday and Sarnia (15-6-1-4) on Saturday before finishing up the pre-Christmas portion of the schedule Dec. 16 in Oshawa and Dec. 17 in Belleville.
