The 97th Annual Elder’s Day at the Indian Fair was blessed with beautiful Fall weather and filled with interactive entertainment. Elders received a gift of an insulated lunch tote or fishing pole, free coffee all day from Tribal Grounds, and lunch and breakfast from Chestnut Tree Restaurant. There were 26 fun-filled door prize baskets raffled off and great Bingo prizes.
The Cherokee Choices program related they would like to thank all of the volunteers, the talented presenters including emcees Brandon Stephens and Shawn Crowe, and Tribal Grounds and Chestnut Tree for their hard work. They would also like to thank Best Buy for donating prizes for bingo; and Tribal Programs which donated gift baskets, especially Keahana Lambert for all of her work coordinating the gift baskets.
Program officials related, “Cherokee appreciates and honors all of the Elders and hope that you had an enjoyable day. Thank you for coming out and celebrating!”
