Extravaganza 2011: Fun, Food & Entertainment

The 5th Annual NWIC Extravaganza was a smashing success!

The community joined us at the Northwest Indian College Lummi Campus for a full day of food, fun and entertainment. The fun included activities and games for all ages. The Indigenous Services Learning program offered planting sunflower seeds in a self contained recycled box made of newspaper, and the Womens Wellnes Project offered learning to make bath salts to relive stress as well as aches and pains.  Also on hand was Frank Dunn, Native American magician for a magic act.

Kudos to the Extravaganza Planning Committee for a job well done!

On behalf of the Extravaganza Planning Committee, I would like to thank all who attended, volunteered and prepared the 5th Annual Extravaganza this year.  It turned out to be such an awesome day, the rain decided to take a day off and everything was so fun.  We got to see so many happy faces on the children who attended, and the adults had fun too.  I think it turned out to be a great day. I would like to thank the Planning Committee; Corby Davis, Pam Hillaire, Josh Phair, Stacie Jefferson, Leslie Dykstra, Tami Chock and Randall Thomas (and me, Tami Julius).  Scott Thomas was not on the committee, but he was there to help us out, whenever he could. I don’t want to forget anyone, but if I do, please forgive me in advance.
