Council contributes to banquet

The Town of High Prairie will be contributing $500 to the annual Elders Banquet, hosted by the High Prairie Native Friendship Centre.

The Centre’s project coordinator/intake worker, Bev L’Hirondelle, wrote council Oct. 12 with the request to support the popular event, scheduled for Dec. 9.

“All Elders hold a respected and revered place within our community structure, and this event is held in their honour because they have so timelessly contributed so much to our society,” wrote L’Hirondelle.

“This one night a year also gives the Elders a night of fellowship and an old-time dance with friends.”

  1. Ben Dover, I would agree that religious groups should not receive taxpayers’ money, but I don’t have a problem with a small amount of funds from time to time going to groups that make our community a better place, such as 4-H, children’s sports, commemorative events, fitness for seniors, and so on. I consider this Elders Banquet a worthy event. It also represents a fair number of citizens in the area.
