WCIV New General Manager begins August 29th

Sam Wright -Former General Manager
This was going to be a very picturesque entry about Sam Wright's Farewell Party. But we are having camera battery problems and there are no pictures. Use your imagination. Stephanie Johnson, Jo Phillips and La Shae Hall (assisted by her daughter Raine) made this a really fun time with balloons, a cake, speeches, good food,  family and friends. We saw Sam off in grand style and he's missed around here. Well...everything except the drum beating and the bull horn in a small space being used as motivational tools!

Sam Wright begins his new career (one he really was striving for when he came to WCIV) teaching school next week. We wish him well and are sure we will see him back from time to time. This place is just special like that.

We now look forward to our new General Manager Sherri Dillow and a new phase for Wolf Creek Indian Village & Museum. Read about Sherri Dillow to manage Wolf Creek  WCIV is growing and just keeps getting better!!!  We ask all our family and friends of WCIV to welcome Sherri and come by and say hello.

Is There Any Help for Sam?
(by Indian Jo Phillips) 
The day fast approaches,
When Sam will bid us adieu,
The village isn't complete,
What can we do?
We seek help for our "physically challenged" Friend,
A "Volunteer Week" has been planned.
Would you please attend?
Give us a call,
Become part of the gang,
And let's send Sam off with a Great Big Bang!
WHERE: Wolf Creek Indian Village
WHEN: AUGUST 3rd - AUGUST 6th 10 AM - 5PM
PARTICULARS: Need good, strong, able bodied people to help Sam finish as much as possible in reconstructing what can be finished before Sam's leaves us for his teaching job. He plans on returning next summer to help us on the Gate houses. 

Bring extra tools if you have them, (we only have one set) hammers, saws, sawhorses, drills etc.

Bring a lunch daily. 

A Thank You SAM party is planned at 4 PM SATURDAY AUGUST 6th in the village. It is pot luck, bring a covered dish or meat to cook on an open fire. Eating utensils will be provided.
