Members of the Rogers County Cherokee Association (RCCA) will honor veterans at a community holiday potluck luncheon this weekend.
Slated for 2 p.m. Sunday, this will be the last regularly scheduled meeting of the RCCA for 2017.
RCCA will provide the turkey and dressing, and members and their guests planning to attend are encouraged to bring their favorite side dish or dessert to share.
“The holidays are a time to gather with your family and community to break bread and remember all of the blessings we have to be thankful for,” said Cara Cowan Watts, RCCA President. “Tribal citizens and their family members are invited to join us as we celebrate our shared community, culture, language, and values.”
Following a brief business meeting which will include a presentation of the 2018 calendar of events and meetings and election of officers, all veterans in attendance will be honored.
RCCA’s next meeting is slated for Jan. 14, 2018, when Robert Lewis will return to present Cherokee Storytelling.
Cherokee Nation citizens who are 18 years of age or older qualify for paid membership in RCCA which allows them to vote as members of the organization and hold leadership positions.
RCCA meets monthly except September and December on the second Sunday of the month at 2 p.m. RCCA meets in their own building located in Tiawah, OK at 15488 East 523 Road, Claremore, OK 74019 which is East of Tiawah-Justus School’s North campus.
