Warm Today But Bundle Up Tomorrow for Morning Walk

MAYETTA:  People are urged to bundle up tomorrow morning for the annual Walk a Mile In Their Mocs that begins in Prairie Peoples Park at 9:30 a.m. A cold front is expected to move in tonight that will leave temperatures in the 60-degree range for the rest of the weekend.

The walk is the first in a series of events sponsored by the Tribal Victim Services Program in support of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  Other activities and events scheduled include The Shawls of Honor Project-Oct. 12, Splatters that Matter-Oct. 19-20 and Trunk or Treat-Oct. 26.  Interlaced throughout October with the Social Services offerings are the Potawatomi Fire Department open house that will highlight Fire Prevention Week on Oct. 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., a General Council meeting on Oct. 19, and the Honor the Elders Ceremony at Firekeepers Elder Center on October 23.

For details of activities and events check out the sidebar titled Community (bottom right).

Until then, enjoy the warm air, and here are some photographs taken today of fall on the reservation.
