The Boys Club extends its sincere sympathy to the friends and family of Melinda Smoker Bigwitch who passed away on Aug. 5; to the friends and family of David Bradley who passed away on Aug. 8 and to the friends and family of Samuel Emmett “Buddy” Walkingstick who passed away on Aug. 10.


We also extend our sympathy to the friends and family of Agnes Geona (Owle) Bigmeat who passed away on Aug. 10.  Agnes is a native of Cherokee but made her home in Flint, Mich. for most of her life.


Please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
