10.03.2019 Dean Rhodes Events

When Tribal members gather in 2033 for the Tribe’s 50th Restoration celebration, what will the community look like? This is a question the Tribe is exploring with Tribal members from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 17.

The Shawash-ili?i 2033 planning team will be hosting a community listening session at the Tribal Community Center, 9615 Grand Ronde Road. The session will focus on health care, social services, education and employment needs in the Grand Ronde community and will help planners understand the needs of Tribal members. A salmon dinner will be served.

The Tribe launched the 16-month community development planning process in May to help guide the decision making and priority setting and build on the progress the Tribe has made since Restoration.
