Photos from June Youth Trip to Cherokee Homeland
At their regular meeting
(2nd Tuesday monthly) the Victory Cherokee Organization discussed details
to finalize setting up their office within the Faith Trinity Church building
at 1107 W. Main in Collinsville. They hope to have their phone and computer
set up soon, as well as an addition to the signage on Pastor Danny Stanley's
front glass at the Church. The group also discussed plans to participate with
two neighboring District 8 Cherokee groups (from Tulsa and Bartlesville) in
the Cherokee National Holiday Parade on September 3rd in Tahlequah.
Before the business meeting
started the group got to preview many of the photos from the youth
trip in June taken by four Collinsville youth (Phillip McMullen, Davie
Henry, Rachel Wilder, and Alyssa Fields) and their facilitator Alice Wilder.
Those kids are still working on scrapbooks and will make a more complete report
at a future meeting
Garage in Skiatook won the latest Indian art print by Bill and Traci Rabbit
awarded by the Collinsville VCO. See the VCO
web site for more information.
the July 12th meeting the VCO group headed upstairs to 1950's Room of the Trinity
Faith Church. for refreshments.
|Alice Wilder brought
back many wonderful photos from the 10-day traveling history tour in June
2005. The Collinsville students joined other Cherokee youth in "Retracing
Cherokee Footsteps through Tennessee, Georgia and North Carolina".
They explored historic sites in the original Cherokee homeland. I'll use
these two photos as a sample and add more complete coverage and photos
when the youth make their next report. -- Ted 7/13
