On June 2, the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe honored retiring Central Electric Cooperative Directors Butch Morrison of Mitchell and Jim Headley of White Lake with Star Quilts. The recognition took place at the cooperative’s Buffalo County District Meeting at the Powwow Grounds in Fort Thompson.
Pictured left to right are Central Electric Director Donita Loudner, Crow Creek Tribal Chairman Peter Lengkeek, Central Electric Director Butch Morrison, Central Electric General Manager Ken Schlimgen, Central Electric Director Jim Headley and Central Electric Board President Duane Wolbrink.
Tribal Chairman Peter Lengkeek thanked Morrison and Headley for their years of compassionate service to the Tribe and described the care that goes into making the quilts - every stitch represents a prayer for the recipient.
Following the quilt presentation, attendees formed a greeting line to honor the outgoing directors. A meal was also served to show appreciation for our Buffalo County members.
