Last weekend, Mike and Lynn Fabrick organized a silent auction to raise funds for this years powwow.
"We held a silent auction at our store to get proceeds towards our powwow that we're hosting on July 1," said Mike Fabrick, whose first powwow last year was a huge success. "We raised around $4,800 towards the event."
Businesses from around the valley donated items to be bid on from gift cards to unique wall paintings.
"There was a great variety for everybody and very well attended," Fabrick continued. "To me, it was a success."
The powwow last year saw a lot of local people immersing themselves in aboriginal culture.
"The dancers really enjoyed being able to dance on the grass next to the river, so it was in more of a natural setting," recalled Fabrick from last years powwow. "They felt good about the whole thing."
With the nearly $4,800 raised for the powwow, Mike said that he and his wife Lynn can focus more on organizing another great powwow for Canada Day weekend.
