Powwow is a hit, three years in a row

Powwow is a hit, three years in a row

Posted by on Aug 31, 2018 in Whats-new |

Ranch Ehrlo Society’s third annual powwow was the most successful yet!

Dancers from all over came to our Pilot Butte campus to take part in the one-day competitive event, with age groups ranging from tiny tot to Golden Age. Talent and dedication were on clear display as several drum groups performed and dancers entered the arena to vie for cash prizes. MC Howie Thompson returned for the third year with new arena director Jacob Stonechild. They kept everything running smoothly as well as ensuring spectators were entertained during breaks from the dancing.

Our family carnival was once again a hot spot for the younger crowd, with kids lining up to try their hand at classical fair games with a twist like flamingo ring toss. Each game was set up, manned, and taken down by one our group homes – great job!

Volunteers came out from all over the agency to help run the canteen and cook and serve the free hamburger supper and take care of the parking lot and grounds. Thank you!

And once again, thank you to our fantastic sponsors!

We hope to see you next year for what is fast becoming our favourite way to end summer at the Ranch!
