In an effort to provide bonus coverage, Team Observer joins with the Andahwod Continuing Care & Elder Services and the Elders Advisory Board in celebration of the Elders Christmas Party on Monday, Dec. 15. Elder Community Activity Assistant Tomarrah M-J Green informs that 27 people signed in for the Elders Christmas Party and Tribal Council Chaplain Jennifer Wassegijig said the opening prayer.
“We appreciate the support of the Saginaw Chippewa Youth Council for running the gift wrapping station and congratulations to Guy Fallis, Tracy Fallis, and Barb Sprague for solving the Christmas Unscramble Word Game first,” Green said. “In other holiday events, Barb Sprague and Roger High solved the Christmas Nativity Crossword first and Roger High, Jo Kathy Sprague, Sue Kequom, Debra Melton, Ellie Van Horn and Gloria Norvaris solved the Christmas Word Search first. Jo Kathy Sprague, Dorothy Smith, and Judy Bannister were also winners in the Candy Cane Game.
There were also 22 Elders who participated in the gift exchange.
