The Canoes are arriving today (July 31st) around 3:00; with supervisor permission, employees are allowed to come and greet the canoes. Departments must remain open, so supervisors and managers will need to make the decision who stays in the office.

We had some issues with the county permit, they want us to move one of the light poles at 64th over four feet, which means that we have to redo all of the plans and get new permits, which is changing the move in date. We are now planning to move in to the new Administration building on Tuesday, September 8th.

Employee Appreciation and family day is on Friday, August 14th. We will start the day with a meeting in the Tribal gym and then move outside for fun and games. If you wish to be on a softball team, please call Carolyn Sheldon.

Tulalip Days is going to be Labor Day week-end, September 5, 6 and 7th. The parade will be on Saturday, September 5th. More details will be coming out soon.

Hope you all have a great day and weekend.

Per-Capita-Distribution Date Change

On July 10th the Board of Directors made a resolution changing per-capita distribution from the 2nd Tuesday of every quarter to the first Saturday of February, May, August and November. Our next per-capita will be distributed on Saturday, August 1st from 9:00am to 6:00pm in the tribal gym. Please mark your calendars to come visit us that day.

We made the decision to move Per-capita distribution to Saturdays hoping that it will provide better customer service for tribal members. We know that a lot of people have a hard time getting here during the middle of the week because of their jobs. We also have a lot of youth who are in school and sometimes they don’t make the right choice: they skip school to pick up their per-capita checks. We decided that we would move Per-capita to Saturday to provide that extra time so no one has to take time off from work or school. The bank is still open on Saturday, so checks can still be cashed.

If you have any questions about the change, contact Enrollment, 360-716-4300.
