CONGRATULATIONS TRIBAL COUNCIL AND SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS

Congratulations to all the Tribal Council and School Board Members who were elected last week in the General Election. The Boys Club looks forward to working with you in the future.

THANKS!

The Cherokee Children’s Home wants to thank the Smoky Mountain Roller Girls for their fundraising efforts at a recent Roller Girl event held in the Birdtown Community. The “Smoky Mountain Roller Girls” is an all-female roller derby league that aims to provide an outlet for fun, fitness and camaraderie among its members. Their goals range from developing athletic ability and fostering teamwork among their members, to giving back to the community through charitable donations of time and activity.

All funds and donations received by the Children’s Home are going toward the construction of a new Children’s Home facility that will be built in the Birdtown Community.  If you would like to have a fundraising event to benefit the Children’s Home, contact Cris Weatherford (828) 497-5813.

When the Boys Club recognized the OJT students who participated in the Club’s summer youth work program earlier this year, photographs were not available for all of the participants.  We would like to recognize Larissa Martinez who worked at the desk of the Garage and Body Shop and Jordyn Thompson who received her summer training at CBC’s Graphics Department.  Jesse Toineeta also spent another summer working at CBC Printing. Thanks to all of these students; we hope to have good participation in this program again next year.
