KEEP SAFETY IN MIND

As mentioned in our last One Feather Report, the days are getting longer and the temperatures are getting warmer.  The students are excited to be able to enjoy the outdoors as they anticipate their summer break.  Please watch out for students as they load and unload the school buses each day.

Also be mindful of the many workers whose jobs take them to the roadsides. The mowing and trimming season is approaching.  Watch out for flaggers, workers and equipment.  Also watch out for DOT, Police, Fire and EMS personnel as they do their jobs.

CLUB’S BIODIESEL PRODUCTION CONTINUES

The Boys Club continues to produce biodiesel fuel on site with the assistance of businesses and individuals who donate their used cooking oil.  If you or your business needs a way to dispose of your used cooking oil, contact Donnie Owle at the Club’s Shop Department to arrange a pick up.  Call him at 497-9101 for details.

SUPPORT YOUR CHEROKEE BRAVES DURING THE SPRING SPORTS

Support the Cherokee Braves spring sports athletes!  This includes baseball, softball, soccer, track, and golf.  Also keep in mind that this is the time of year for athletic and academic awards programs as well as graduation!  Support our children and give thanks to all those who participate in helping making their lives successful each day.
