St. George’s Indian Band Elder’s Feast 2017

January 11, 2018 • News

On December 9, 2017, the St. George’s Indian Band held their annual Elder’s Feast at the Royal Canadian Legion here in St. George’s. Close to 100 seniors along with their partners attended.

The evening opened with Chief Marlene welcoming everyone, recognizing our Elder, and saying a prayer. Chief also gave a special thank you to Rita Hall who contributed financially to this function. She then introduced the members of the St. George’s Indian Band and thanked the executive and directors for volunteering to take positions on the Band.

The meal was provided by the Legion, and there was home made Christmas pudding and sauce for dessert. Mary Garnier, our band treasurer, made the pudding and sauce. Members of the Indian Cove Women’s Circle helped serve.

During the meal there were draws made and a number of our guests won gift cards to various local businesses. There was a door prize donated by the Indian Cove Women’s Circle.

Christmas music played throughout the evening and after the meal there was dancing. It was so nice to see so many of our guests up dancing and enjoying the spirit of the season. A number of people had their pictures taken by the Christmas tree with friends and family members.

The evening started to wind down around 9:00 and all guests were wished Merry Christmas as they were leaving. A great evening was had by all who attended.
