Andahwod Easter Brunch
Joseph V. Sowmick - March 25, 2016
“Here at Andahwod, we all look forward to the ever changing calendar of events and there’s nothing more exciting in the spring time than Easter! Inviting the community into our home for a meal is a heartfelt tradition the residents have been looking forward to,” Maloney said. “Our Andahwod residents and the staff all give a “chi-miigwetch” for the support shown by our community and our Tribal Council.”
Andahwod Support Service Manager Sam Anglin mentions the Andahwod kitchen staff takes great pride in preparing and serving the Elders of the Tribe at the Easter Brunch and look forward to it every year. “The 11 a. m. to 1 p. m. brunch gives us a chance to showcase our customer service and meal preparation,” Anglin said. “It’s a proud moment for our staffers and this year we had over 75 people come to enjoy the brunch.”
Andahwod Dietary Lead Cook Damon Cornett informs this year’s menu included baked ham, mashed potato and gravy, macaroni salad, green beans, cauliflower, broccoli, tossed salad and dinner rolls. “The Easter Brunch also included our regular Elders breakfast items of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, hash brown squares, oatmeal and a fruit medley,” Cornett said. “We also had cake and an assortment of beverages.”
A special holiday event, just like Easter candy, is always sweeter with a special guest and Soaring Eagle Waterpark & Hotel General Manager Bonnie Sprague had Waabooz make an appearance. “We have three adorable mascots connected with our properties, Gizi, Makwa, and Waabooz. Gizi, our baby eaglet serves as our official ambassador for Soaring Eagle Waterpark & Hotel. Makwa, our bear can be seen during events or making s’mores with families at Soaring Eagle Hideaway RV Park during seasonal times,” Sprague said. “Waabooz represents Waabooz Run Golf Course and she can be seen during golf outings and Waabooz does make special appearances during Easter. All of our mascots are very involved with our little guests on property as well as our Tribal community and local events.”
