Starting Construction on New Youth Center

We’re having a blessing and ground braking ceremony at the Tribal Gym on Friday, October 9th. Although it’s not a new building, we’re celebrating the new purpose of the gym as our Youth Center. We’re really excited to finally have a facility dedicated to our youth. I want to thank the Tulalip Construction crew for all the work their going to do, and all the departments who are coming together to make sure our youth services truly meet the needs of our children and teens.

The Blessing will start at 10:00am and the groundbreaking will begin at 11:00am, and lunch will follow. I hope you’ll join us to commemorate this new gathering place for our kids. And to our young people, I hope you’ll continue to give us your input about programs. We really need you to tell us what your needs are, what services will help you be successful and where we are missing the mark.

I look forward to seeing you Friday!
