2016 Summer Celebration
Fun, Food and Fellowship
Detroit Chassis conducted its annual Summer Celebration Thursday, July 28, 2016 on the grounds of the plant on Lynch Rd.
In spite of the threat of rain, it was a perfect day for the event with 82 degree winds and partly sunny skies.
We were all able to enjoy food, fun and fellowship with our families during the celebration while we watched and participated in activities for all ages.
Stahl’s Catering Services provided all refreshments and the menu included: Grilled Hamburgers, Turkey Burgers, Hot Dogs, Jalapeno and Cheese Sausage and Kielbasa with fresh Buns, Baked Beans, Potato Salad and Lemonade, Iced Tea and cold water. Cotton Candy was provided for all to enjoy!
Thanks to overwhelming support of Curtis Evans Industries and AmeriSource more than $3,300 in prizes was awarded during the competitive games, BINGO and raffle.
The 2nd Annual Memorial Horse Shoe Tournament was conducted in honor of the late Robert A. Seabrooks (Breezy) and Jimmy Perryman won this year’s competition and was awarded the traveling championship trophy.
This year’s prizes included:
- Two $25 American Express gift cards

- Four $50 Cedar Pointe tickets
- Ten $100 Citgo Gas cards

To top things off, Michael Guthrie, CEO called an extra number that provided an opportunity for Raymond Nelson to win $100 cash and LaShandra Williams took home $274 from the proceeds of the 50/50 Raffle.
Family members beat our socks off on the Musical Chairs game and Pie Eating Contest and they smiled as they each received their winnings.
The Detroit Chassis leadership team would like to thank all of the committee members for your dedicated time and effort that produced a funfilled event for DCPers and their families.
A huge thank you is extended to Bryan Hicks for providing creative photography services throughout the event that captured precious moments for us to appreciate again and again.
