We are in the final days of summer vacation. I am looking forward to getting back to school. My children are too, although they aren’t going to freely admit it.
Guess what I found? Yes, the birthday book — yay! Sept. 1, Neribeth Nordmarken. Sept. 4, Malachai Smith. Sept. 7, Conrad
Smith. Sept. 9, Hadrian Fairbanks. Sept. 11, Jerry Jordan and Deandra Thompson. Sept. 16, Fire Eagle Dewitt. Sept. 20, Selina Ringley. Sept. 24, Miss Thea Thompson. Sept. 27, Emmilee Smith, Matt Frazer and Kim Brown. Sept. 28, Jacob Bellanger. Here’s hoping that you all have wonderful birthdays.
Well have all been very busy the whole summer long. I think the favorite spot for most of the youth was the Walker swimming beach.
On Aug. 26, the Tribal Police had their annual baseball game and picnic with Onigum. There were several Subway gift cards given out by Mike Reyes. Thanks to the Tribal Police; they did a great job of cooking hot dogs and burgers. Lots of people showed up to have a good time and a meal.
On Aug. 27, we took almost 40 youth ages 12-17 to Valleyfair. Megwitch to Ambassador Rob for arranging the tickets and picnic afterward. All the youth said the lines to the rides weren’t long and they got to ride each one several times.
On Aug. 30, the annual school supply giveaway was held at the Gi-ti-zee Center. We were able to help out over 70 youth. Although there are extras that the parents have to buy, we got a lot of thank yous. And a special thank you to my sister Bev, who always comes and helps me do the shopping.
On Sept. 5 at 1 p.m. at the Onigum Community Center, my family will hold a Bingo fundraiser to help with our brothers’ headstone. Please come and help us out. Thank you in advance.
I will be doing the transportation from the Boys and Girls Club several times a week for the school year. If there are parents and youth who are interested, please let me know.
