Adopt A Native Elder fundraiser
Several Navajo elders will be selling their hand-woven rugs and traditional jewelry at Park City Clothing Company, 558 Main Street, Saturday, July 7 and Sunday, July 8 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.. According to store owner Doug Hollinger, all of the proceeds from their sales will support the Adopt A Native Elder program which provides critical support for Native Americans living in remote areas of the Navajo Reservation. According to Hollinger the two-day sale is an important fundraiser for the group which also hosts the annual rung sale in Deer Valley in November. In addition to food, medicine and financial support ANE also works to help the Native Elders sustain their culture and pass it along to future generations.
The Park City Area Restaurant Association is scheduled to meet Thursday, July 12 at 9 a.m. at the Stein Eriksen Lodge. Members are invited. If there is a topic or guest that would like to be added to a future meeting or for more information, contact at firstname.lastname@example.org.
