Soaring Eagle hosts 35th Anniversary celebration 4-22-16

Joseph V. Sowmick - April 25, 2016

In an effort to provide bonus coverage, Team Observer was on location April 22 for the 35th Anniversary of the SCIT gaming operations. Anyone who has grown up on the Reservation or in Isabella County back in the seventies can reflect on the bingo memories that brought us into a celebration of the 35th anniversary of the Saginaw Chippewa gaming operations.


Soaring Eagle Waterpark & Hotel General Manager Bonnie Sprague said the best thing about bingo memories and the expansion of where we came from and where we are going is everyone, from Tribal members, employees and the community, has a story on the impact the SCIT gaming operations has made. 

“I would like to say that I honestly believe that we, the Tribal members in management met the goal of the Tribe,” Sprague said. “We all had the same vision and our work was done from within our hearts.” 


Tribal Chief Frank J. Cloutier continues to be amazed at how our Tribe and its business interests have grown and firmly believes the best is yet to come.

“Just like any Fortune 500 company, we will continue to work at expanding our role in the marketplace.  The Tribal Council remains driven on the expansion plans for Saganing Eagles Landing Casino and our substation venture there,” Cloutier said. “We will be doing our ongoing renovations with existing business properties and pledge to pursue other avenues to boost our market share through Migizi properties and other business opportunities as they present themselves. With the great support we have from the membership and our employees, we will remain engaged and have a positive vision for the future of our Tribe.”



A full story on the 35th Anniversary will be published in the Tribal Observer.
