She lives on her own property near the reservation. Melda's husband passed away 8 years ago.
Our crew met Melda in 2007 and needless to say, we all fell in love with her and her family.
This is the front of Melda's house - her kitchen area where she prepares the family's meals
You will notice, there is no door.
This is the view after you go through the kitchen to the other part of the house.
It is a 150 year old log cabin that has been in Melda's family for generations.
Inside you will see all sort of old photographs of the classic "Indians" that we all think of when we think of the Great Sioux Indians. These are Melda's family members.
Our crew has decided that its time Melda had a new kitchen and that repairs were done to the front part of her home.

To protect the integrity of current and future fundraisers, please turn in all of the money you raised ASAP. ALL fundraiser money should go directly into your account and is not meant to be used for any other purpose.
Some fundraising opportunities that are coming up include:
Sat. March 21, 2009
See Tammi for a sponsor sheet soon so you can begin getting sponsors. Thanks Tammi for including the Pine Ridge crew along with the Haiti crew!
Sat. March 21, 2009 (along with the Rock-A-Thon)
Tables will be set up in the Narthex and the bidding will begin at 9:00 a.m. and will end at 6:00 p.m. (so everyone can claim their items and we can clean up on our last couple of breaks from rocking.)
So ... clean out your garage and basement and if you find any items that you think might be worth something, bring them for the auction. Let me know what items you are bringing so we can advertise ahead of time. Only bring items that are worthy of selling -- no junk. All money will go directly to the individual who brought the item. Invite your friends and relatives to come and bid on our auction and they can stop by and say "hi" to us, too!
