December 22, 2009 –
A big crowd gathered for the Christmas dinner today at the Firekeepers Elder Center.
Tribal Council with some elders and children sang “The Twelve Days of Christmas” as entertainment during today’s Christmas dinner.
Employees from the Prairie Band Casino & Resort were on hand to serve the dinner and the casino also donated Pendleton door prizes to diners.
Ralph Tecumseh was seen sporting a University of Kansas Santa hat and jacket around the rez this week. Ralph recently retired from the Prairie Band Casino & Resort and is a tribal member.
Santa Claus made a visit to Mayetta on December 5 as part of the Annual Lighting Ceremony and is seen here with a youngster.
Happy New Year
