Cherokee Nation donates $3,000 to County Fair Board

The Cherokee Nation donated $3,000 Tuesday to the Sequoyah County Fair Board, which will help buy trophies and ribbons for winners at the annual county fair. At the presentation are, from the left, above, Sequoyah County Fair Board members Tony Yates, Avis Jackson and Bill Weedon, Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker, and Tribal Councilors Janelle Fullbright and David Thornton. Baker said, "We are committed to ensuring our partnership with Sequoyah County remains strong. Supporting the county fair board means it can continue to maintain the Sequoyah County fairgrounds so that all citizens will be able to utilize and enjoy them."

The donation will be used for 4-H club and other kid-friendly activities and organizations. Bill Weedon, Sequoyah County Fair Board member, said, "Any help we receive from the Cherokee Nation is always very much appreciated. We have a large number of Cherokees in our county, and the tribe's donation helps our fair board and kids in a number of ways." The Cherokee Nation annually donates money to fair boards in all 14 counties of the tribe's jurisdiction.
