     The Sequoyah Classic Golf Tournament was held on Thursday and Friday of last week.  Participation was excellent and a lot of money was raised to go toward the construction of the new Children’s Home, the Bill Taylor Scholarship Endowment and the Cherokee Youth Center.

     Congratulations to Club employees who played in the tournament and especially to those who placed:  Tommy Lambert, Club General Manager, and his partner Jack Gloyne placed first in their flight; Sam Crowe, CBC Printing Department, and his partner Carr Crowe placed first in their flight and Jack Davis, Bus Driver and Board Member, and his partner Dennis Junaluska placed third in their flight.
      Robert Lambert, Bus Driver, Assistant Shop Manager and Board member, Michael Bradley, Bus Driver and Labor Pool, Jody Saunooke, Bus Driver and Labor Pool and Beth Driver, Agelink Child Care Department, also played in the tournament.  Wanda Lawless, Club Board member, and Donica Conseen, Children’s Home Administrative Assistant, assisted with registration.  See the article in this week’s paper for tournament details.

     The Club’s Construction and Facilities Department is planning for five homes to be constructed at the Birdtown HIP Project – two three-bedroom homes and three two-bedroom homes.  Two of the foundations are almost complete at this time.  All construction should be complete by late spring.  Thanks to the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and Tribal Housing for the opportunity to build these homes and for the support they have provided.

     Please be mindful of the students when they are getting on or off the school buses, in the parking lots or on the roads before or after school, when leaving sporting events and when participating in other activities.  Drive slowly in school zone areas and keep alert at all times!  Our children are precious and not always as cautious as they should be so please make the extra effort to watch out for them.
