The Medicine Lodge Indian Peace Treaty Association will hold a public meeting on

11-19-18 at 7:00 p.m. at the Fellowship Hall of the United Methodist Church in Medicine Lodge

The purpose of this meeting is to:

- Discuss the results of the Pageant held this year. Attendance and finance reports will be provided.

- Elect new officers: President, 1st & 2nd Vice-President, Secretary & Treasurer

- Determine if & when the next Pageant will be held

- Strategize how to keep the Pageant viable

We ask that suggestions or comments about the Peace Treaty celebration be submitted in writing. There is a survey on our Facebook page that you can complete to submit your suggestions or comments about the Peace Treaty celebration. They may also be submitted at this public meeting or sent anytime to Peace Treaty, P.O. Box 194, Medicine Lodge, KS 67104. This way we won’t take up a lot of time on comments at the meeting; we’ll have the information in written form to refer to in the future; and people who cannot attend the meeting can have the opportunity to participate.

Sign-up sheets for volunteers for committee chairmen, and committee members will be provided.

We need everyone who is interested in continuing the tradition of the Pageant to attend this meeting to help guide the Peace Treaty Board in making decisions about how we carry on from this point. Please pass on the importance of this meeting and make plans to attend.
