The Purdue Crew Team Alumni recently donated two new shells to the team and dedicated one to their longtime head coach, Dave Kucik, and the second to his wife, Lonni. Joe Micon, LUM executive director, was in attendance for the dedication of the second shell named for Lonni Kucik. Lonni, a member of Faith Presbyterian Church, West Lafayette (a LUM member church), served on the LUM Board of Directors and Executive Council.
Purdue Crew Team continues to be a very generous supporter of LUM, in particular the LUM Good Samaritan Fund and Hunger Hike. This past February, the crew team donated $8,542 to the LUM Good Samaritan Fund from their Row-A-Thon fundraising event.
Pictured above is the dedication ceremony which includes the “christening” of the shell with water directly from the Wabash River, the home of the Purdue Crew Team. Join us in congratulating Lonni & Dave on this honor; and once again thanking the Purdue Crew Team for their continued support of LUM.
