MAYETTA: With over 100 degree temperatures registering most days this summer in Kansas it is a good thing the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation has the Boys & Girls Club.
Below are a few photographs that were taken today inside the club of the many activities that are offered:
The Language Department has been offering classes at the club and ended their first session with a language carnival of games and fun.
One of the games involved keeping balloons in the air. Competitors had to say two words in Potawatomi before playing each game and to win tickets for prizes.
Language instructor Cindy LeClere shares a good laugh with Leondre Hale who was a student in the class and was reciting a few Potawatomi words for the News.
In other action at the club today besides the language carnival, one room was full of children doing several activities. Above are some billiards players.
Kids watching and playing video games.
Foosball was popular.
A couple of children coloring.
In the bead room, from left to right, are Terryn Proctor, Sierra Pahmahmie, and Ashley Williams who work with the Title VII program at the club.
In the gym there was a fierce game of kick ball in progress.
In the cafeteria lunch was getting prepared.
