With summer rapidly coming to a close, the new IGIP program year is getting ready to start!

The Executive Longhouse Team has been hard at work revamping and planning the 2014 - 2015 IGIP Nation events schedule and I think you will be pleased with the results.  You will recognize old favorites like the family picnic and opening ceremonies, IGIP Movie Day, the Mystic Aquarium sleepover, the winter Downtown Cabaret show, and the year end Camp Hi-Rock weekend.

We also have been working on new events like the new welcome back IGIP Beach Party, a new outdoor sledding event with hot coco and a chili cook off, ice skating, and getting the Nation to participate in "Green Sweep" events around town.

The Team also wanted to add new twists to events like the fall hayride and Halloween Party, the notoriously short Easter Egg Hunt won't be so short this coming spring, you'll want to see what's racing around Wooster for this year's Penny Fair, and the Kickapoo Tribe is really going to be bringing home the bacon this fall during a Roosevelt Forest camp fire.

We've even completely revamped the IGIP website to help keep you informed and in the loop about Nation events and activities with our new online events calendar.  Many of you will be excited to learn that for the first time ever, we will be able to accept electronic credit and debit card payments for IGIP registration and events from the Stratford IGIP website backed by a secure PayPay store!

I think you will really enjoy what the Longhouse has planned for an exciting 2014 - 2015 program year!

Stay tuned for more information appearing here after the September 4 Longhouse meeting.
