A message from Alekos - one of the businesses destroyed in Monday's fire

I'm on the mailing list for Aleko's Carry Out and I received this email this morning:
To our valued customers and friends,

As you may already know, the community of Chelsea was dealt a devastating blow yesterday afternoon in the form of a swift moving fire that swept through several businesses in the Pamida Strip Mall. Alekos of Chelsea was unfortunately one of those businesses. Even though the buildings were destroyed we are thankful that everyone is safe and unharmed.

We are so grateful for the outpouring of care and support from the Chelsea community during this difficult time. We want to reassure you that Alekos of Chelsea will rebuild. While this is a "minor" setback for us, we love Chelsea and plan to be a part of this wonderful community for many years to come.

If you have any questions concerning catering, please contact Carl at 734-934-7056.

Again, thank you for your concern and support. It means a great deal to us.

Carl & Tricia Laesch
Alekos of Chelsea
Now that we know that everyone is ok, I think you may be amused to hear that when we first heard about the fire, my daughter cried out "Oh no! Not Aleko's! I love their pizza!" Carl and Tricia, I agree with my daughter's sentiments and will be very eager for your return to Chelsea.

I hope that things go ok on the rebuilding efforts. That has got to be just awful to be sifting through what has happened and what needs to be done. Best wishes to them! I went to high school with Carl and wish him and his wife nothing but the best!
