Come on over...or up..or down... :)

Everyone is welcome, and admission is free to everyone and everyone is fed as well. Geez, it is possible for me to use the word "everyone" anymore?

We do our best to make this as fun of a pow wow as possible with no attitudes or rudeness. Just lots of dancing and good singing.

The pow wow committee is happy to announce that FancyStar will be serving as our head lady judge.

We also have another confirmed guest drum:

MGD singers from Lawrenceville, GA.

This dance is coming up in a few days. Just wanted to reiterate that this dance is FREE to all, no dancer fees, no gate fees, no drum fees, no food fees, no jacket fees, nothing :)

FancyStar 11-09-2004 03:03 PM

Yeah, just a few more days! I am so excited. I am glad that Singerdad and Helen are giving me the chance to be Head Ladies Judge. If you tune in look for me. Little woman with big belly waddleing around trying to assert her authority!! LOL

Seriously, come out to this pow-wow. No politics just good old style pow-wow fun. Dancing,singing, visiting and eating! The four things that make a pow-wow great.
