The 10th Annual Great Dakota Gathering is coming up in Winona September 13th through the 15th, and there is a need for volunteers to help out.
The event will be held in Unity Park located at the east end of Lake Winona and this year it will commemorate the Celebration of Our Friendships.
Volunteers are needed for a number of events including set up, serving of meals, Youth Education Day, information and sales of buttons and t-shirts, grounds maintenance, Coca-Cola stand, and clean-up/tear down.
The weekend will be filled with activities including sunrise ceremonies, four "feasts" , a learning tent for education about Dakota life and culture, dancing, and craft vendors, along with a Dakota Community Spiritual Service on Sunday the 15th.
If you are interested in helping out contact Volunteer Coordinator Shawn Nicol at 218-838-0211.
