Trenton city officials including Mayor Kye Stack have rallied behind a local family grieving the loss of a cherished family member.
Local hockey coach Kurt Montroy died Dec. 3. He left behind a wife and three children. He was 49 years old.
Trenton City Council members MaryEllen McLeod and Timber Baun-Crooks have begun supporting an upcoming fundraiser, but are currently lacking items needed for a silent-auction.
McLeod said all items are welcome including items like sports memorabilia, gift baskets and gift cards to local businesses.
Baun-Crooks and McLeod made a call out Monday for as many donated items as possible.
"We will take anything we can get," Baun-Crooks said.
A spaghetti dinner fundraiser has been scheduled from noon to 5 p.m January 13 at the Westfield Activities Center. All are welcome to attend. The cost is $10 per adult and $5 for children five to 13 years old. Children five and under get in free.
Guests can expect food, a silent auction, 50/50 raffle and entertainment.
For information on how you can help with the silent auction contact MaryEllen McLeod 734-558-3077, Vicki Sawyer 734-624-7227, Timber Baun-Crooks 734-676-4949 and Mayor Kyle Stack 734-493-3801.
"I would like to thank all of you in advance for the support you will give and have already given to my brother's family. He was loved more than words can say and will be dearly missed by all who knew him." -- Ken Montroy, brother of Kurt Montroy
