The Penn State Powwow

On Hold for 2021

Relatives, I am getting a number of messages for our powwow in April 2021. Right now I am sorry to report that the coronavirus/COVID-19 is keeping us from having the event. The state of Pennsylvania is not allowing gatherings of our size to take place because of the virus. If that changes, I will notify you all as soon as possible. With all that is going on now, a good powwow is what we need.
