The Jump Start school supplies and backpack night is a great success. Each year this is a great challenge to make happen. Each year the American Indian community looks forward to the distribution of the 100 backpacks and needed school supplies. Everyone looked forward to the sociability of the evening with anticipation.
Appropriate to the specific interests of the students of the Soaring Eagle classes is an announcement by Sheila Dasher, 619-947-2225, of the San Diego Native Youth Conference on Sunday, September 28, 08 at the Handelry Hotel. Most of the student committee is also Soaring Eagles Dance class participants and they are taking wing. Soon they will be soaring high and far. We all take pride in their accomplishments. After all they are our future and they will carry on our Indian culture. Our culture, custom and tradition are what define us as Indian people.
The parents voted to keep the Wednesday night for the Soaring Eagles Dance Class. The program has been refunded from September 10, to November 19, 2008 by the Southern California American Indian Resource Center, Inc. (SCAIR) and the San Diego Indian Center.
Until then ride those
bikes safely and we will look for you all on Wednesday night 6 to 8:30
pm from September 10, to November 19, 2008 at the Soaring Eagles Dance
Class, Normal Heights Community Center, 4649 Hawley Blvd. San Diego, CA.
