Saturday, April 29 - Seminole Indian Scouts Cemetery Cleanup
On Saturday, April 29, several SISCA members and friends gathered at the Seminole Indian Scouts Cemetery. The group started at eight in the morning. It was an overcast morning, which was a blessing. They worked until just after one in the afternoon. They were able to clean the entire cemetery.
We would like to thank everyone who took time out of their weekend to come and help with the cemetery cleanup. We are so thankful for you and cannot truly thank you enough. A very special thank you goes out to Mr. Joe Louis Factor for organizing the cleanup.
For those interested, we will be having another cleanup very soon.

The mistress of ceremony, who did an amazing job, was Benita Villarreal. For two hours, Yumari performed traditional dances from around Mexico.
