a casual observer a meeting by an organization in a building "dedicated"
almost 9 months ago would not be a big deal. But to the many people and organizations
involved in the multi-year process to finally make this meeting possible it is
big news and a great relief.
Many To Thank" ... but these three individuals : John Smaligo (Tulsa
County), Stan Sallee (City of Collinsville) and Buel Anglen (Cherokee Nation)
represent three organizations key to the Victory Cherokee Organization's efforts
to reach the milestones of ownership, annexation, utility easements, and funding
possible. The VCO members have and will continue to contribute volunteer labor
and leadership to the effort. The VCO is holding a "Poker
Run" July 25th to raise funds for Victory Cemetery maintenance.
County efforts continue with work on widning the entry roadway (to the Victory
Cemetery & VCO Community Center from 12th Street) expected this week. The
City of Collinsville electrical department completed electrical service to the
center (yesterday) ... made possible by the Cherokee Nation's purchase of adjacent
land which had previously been landlocked from utility easements.
