One Spirit Canoe Fundraiser:
(Black= Funds raised to-date April 2012)
Our One Spirit Canoe Family has successfully completed another season of Tribal Journeys and raised $2,500 towards our own canoe. We thank Gogo's Mill for the donation of cedar planking for our Veterans canoe. We thank Potlatch funds for supporting our 2011 Elders on Tribal Journeys as well as the CNSC (Canoe Nation Support Consortium) for the donation of radios, safety equipment and life jackets.
We continue to hold yearly rummage sales in the last weekend of May and the first weekend of June, as well as our raffles and t-shirts sales on the Journeys. Our special thanks to the many large and small donations from the community in helping our youth and Elders as we grow towards our own canoe program.
Yearly the majority of the cost for our canoe Journeys is taken up by canoe rental fees, trailering and hauling; we loose out on many opportunities for the Youth to get out and practice and for the teachable moments with the older relations.
Wellness Center Progress
We continue to work toward a Wellness Center, our community core programming. We are now seeking options to help buy or lease some wilderness land for gatherings and haveing partnerships in place for the gatherings we hold.
