Our sympathy goes out to the friends and family of Kassie Wolfe Driver who passed away Tuesday, Feb. 25.   We also extend our sympathy to the friends and family of Eugene Willard Wiggins who passed away on Friday, Feb. 28.

We are very sad to report the passing of Johnathon Douglas “JD” Davis on Friday, Feb. 28.  John was the nephew of Jack Davis, long-time Boys Club employee and former Board Member.  John also served as the Cherokee Central Schools’ Student Representative on the Boy’s Club Board from 2004-2006.

Please keep all of these families in your thoughts and prayers as they face the challenges of this difficult time.

Eight members of the American Legion Steve Youngdeer Post 143 presented a Tribal Flag to Boys Club General Manager Tommy Lambert on Monday morning.  The Boys Club recently put up a new flag pole to replace their older leaning flag pole and will proudly fly this flag bearing the Seal of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians along with the American Flag.

We are very grateful to the members of the Steve Youngdeer Post for this gesture and for serving our great country over these many years.  Thank you also to all of our men and women serving our country.

Members present during the presentation of the flag included Commander Lew Harding, Reuben Taylor, Ernie Panther, Jimmy Arch, David Ledford, Clarence Welch and Warren DuPree.


Congratulations to the Lady Braves for their impressive win over Rosman Friday night 82-53.  The Lady Braves will play Friday, March 7 at 7p.m. at the UNC-Greensboro Fleming Gymnasium in the first round of the 1-A Western Regional Playoffs against Hayesville.  If they win this game, they will play Saturday, March 8 at 6p.m. against the winner of the Winston-Salem Prep vs. Kernersville Bishop McGuinness game that will be played after the Lady Braves’ game on Friday night.

 Congratulations also to Kendall Toineeta who shares the honor of being named WNC Player of the Week for Week 13 along with Franklin’s Sarah Henson and Pisgah Sophomore Brooklyn Allen!

 A Fan Bus will be offered by the Boys Club on Friday and hopefully Saturday as well!  Call the Boys Club at 497-9101 for more details regarding the Fan Bus.


A parade is planned for Friday, March 7, as a sendoff for the Lady Braves’ Basketball Team who will be traveling to Greensboro to compete against Hayesville.  If you want to participate in the parade, meet at the High School Parking Lot at 9:30 a.m.

The girls will leave the High School at 10a.m. and will travel down Acquoni Road, across the bridge at Qualla Housing and down Highway 441 by the Council House.  Park your cars on the parade route – get your signs, banners and pom poms out to show these ladies how proud we are of them.

Program managers – encourage your employees to come outside of your buildings along the parade route to cheer our team on!
