“It’s not considered Beecher Day, it’s Thunder. Beecher Day’s in the summer.
The West End needs help, more houses and more things for the kids to do. There’s nothing for the kids, everything’s gone. We need better community centers, that’s really gonna help the kids. Give out some free tutoring. You see how many kids that were in high school that don’t go to school no more?
The disconnect between the older and younger generation is a respect thing. They don’t respect us young folk. They think they can just talk to us any type of way. If they gave us a little more help, out here, the West End would be better.” -The Crew, Russell - Thunder 2018 at Beecher Terrace
