In recognition of Mexico native and head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers Tyronn Lue, the Mexico Area Chamber of Commerce has announced plans for the second Community Day of Service in his honor. The event will be held September 11 or a time during the week that is conducive to the organization’s schedule.
It is the chamber's hope that the whole community seeks a way to be involved. In 2016, more than 25 organizations participated, as well as every student from Pre-K through eighth grade in Mexico Public Schools. This year, Mexico High School will join in as part of their homecoming celebration.
Projects range from special one day projects, kicking off annual campaigns that support the community, collection drives, community beautification, and more.
Mexico Area Chamber of Commerce President Robby Miller remarked, “Tyronn Lue is the perfect individual to have this event named after. Though he is very successful and well known, Tyronn continues to serve the community where he grew up, sometimes very quietly. He gives to those who were a big part of his life as well as those who were not even in Mexico during his time here. His giving knows no boundaries and is often done without recognition. That is what this week represents, giving without boundaries or recognition. Thank you, Tyronn, for setting the example.”
The day will begin with a kick off at the Mexico Area Chamber of Commerce at 8 a.m. A member of each participating organization is encouraged to attend. Churches, civic organizations, businesses, and individuals are encouraged to participate. So the Chamber can highlight and document the activities, participants are asked to share the specifics with the Mexico Area Chamber of Commerce.
