INFORMATION

The annual Peoria Children’s Christmas party was held on Saturday December 9, 2017.  126 Peoria children and their families enjoyed a delightful afternoon of lunch and gifts from Santa. This year the children received a jacket in their treat bags. Peoria Tribal teens ages 13-17, received a $25 Walmart gift card. 23 Peoria teens were in attendance.  Making this year’s party the most attended party in the 15 years I have been the coordinator.

Profits from the sale of Peoria bottled water; conference room rent and donations received from tribal members are used to fund the Christmas party. We combine our decorations with those of the Drug Elimination Program of The Peoria Housing Authority, Ottawa Tribe, and the High Winds Casino to have a beautifully decorated building that can be used for all the Christmas parties.  There is one final clean up after the last of the Christmas parties.
