On July 21, 2021, Sioux Valley Dakota Nations Wellness Team held an appreciation for all our first responders and mental health workers. It was well attended and much appreciated “Thank You” dinner. Everyone gathered in the SVDN Veteran’s Hall, and enjoyed some light music at first, while everyone slowly trickled in. Once all were in attendance, Wakpa McKay started the evening with some basic introduction, a quick review of the evening’s agenda, some kind words from Councillor Jon Bell, then proceeded with dinner. After a wonderful dinner, all in attendance were treated to the hilarious comedy of Big Daddy Taz. It was a thoughtful and enjoyable evening for all.
