Bozho (Hello),

Well, it’s Family Reunion Festival time again. We hope to have fair weather for all the festivities. The Citizen Potawatomi Veterans Organization will be handing out the Veterans Red Ribbons at our table near the registration booths Thursday and Friday. Our Veterans meeting will be Saturday at 9 a.m. at the FireLake Golf Course clubhouse on the second floor. Coffee and donuts… Yum!

Our CPN Veterans Organization has been growing and very busy with local school demonstrations and parades. We have a trailer we use for parades, which allows us to ride. All CPN veterans and their families are welcome to join us. All we ask is that you provide your own lawn chair; if you don’t have one, we have extras.

I like to keep our veterans informed about the help available through the Veterans Affairs (VA). They are always adding to and improving services to help our veterans. One area is helping family caregivers of veterans. The VA is providing in-person home visits to allow staff to collaborate with caregivers and veterans, adequately assess their clinical needs, and recommend any additional support and services that may improve their quality of life. Their goal is to provide the best care possible for every veteran and caregiver. Migwetch (Thank you)!

Our next CPN Veterans Organization meeting will be July 25 (the fourth Tuesday of the month) at 6 p.m. or as soon as you can get there. All CPN veterans and their families are welcome; you don’t even have to be a member. We just like socializing with our veterans and their families.

Meet, greet and eat!

Migwetch (Thank you),

Daryl Talbot, Commander
