November 2017 NewsletterRead Now
It is with reverence and honor that we observe Veterans' Day. The sacrifice of our brave men and women in uniform is never lost on us. We take time out to honor this special day, but do our best to spend every day thanking those who have fought for the freedoms we enjoy.
Placing Flags at Seminole Indian Scouts Cemetery
On Friday, November 10, members of SISCA placed flags on the graves of those who served in the military, ahead of the observance of Veterans' Day. This is an annual tradition for SISCA. This is one very small act that we hope shows those who have fought and died for our country how grateful we are for their service.
Seminole Days 2017
It is hard to believe that it is already November. Time has flown by. We are still working on compiling all of our Seminole Days photos and videos. Once we add the pictures to the site, we will send out the link to everyone. Thank you for your patience.
Every Seminole Days is a special time of year, but I think many of you would agree that Seminole Days 2017 was particularly important. This year, everyone who gathered at the Carver School grounds came together in solidarity, fellowship, and out of love and respect for our ancestors and our legacy as an organization. Thank you for your unwavering and continued support. We are indebted to you, humbled, overwhelmed, and grateful.
We want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. We hope that you will be spending the day surrounded by your loved ones.

Monthly Meeting - Saturday, December 9, 2017
at 1:00 PM
Our next monthly meeting will take place on Saturday, December 9 at 1:00 PM. At the next meeting, we will be discussing and planning events for the upcoming year.
We did not meet in October, but we will be meeting today (November 11 at 1 PM). During this meeting, we will be discussing our Kinney County Frontier Christmas booth.
Since Seminole Days, we've had two cemetery cleanups (Oct 21 and Nov 3). Both of the cleanups were organized and led by Mr. Joe Louis Factor. We also want to thank Mr. Joe Kelly, who came out to the cemetery yesterday while we were placing the flags, for all of his hard work as well.
Thank you to Ms. Beverly A. Kelly for taking on the project of cleaning and reorganizing the resource room. It's a lot of work, but she has tackled it with enthusiasm.
Thank you to Ms. Cynthia Atchico for donating the smart TV to the museum. It will make a wonderful addition to the space.
Finally, thank you to everyone who has continued to support us, especially during this time. We appreciate your thoughts, prayers, meditations, and good, positive vibes. We feel them. We know that all will be well.
Melva, Chuck & Byron Best
