Tamastslikt Cultural Institute, in partnership with Pendleton Center for the Arts, will host activities that coincide with the current Ric Gendron: Rattlebone exhibit.

Gendron was inspired by contemporary music, pop icons, and tribal culture.

During Teen Night on Friday, youths are encouraged to drop by the Theater at Tamastslikt between 4-7 p.m. to contribute to a group art work that will be displayed at Tamastslikt.

Artistic skills aren’t a requirement for the multi-media project that includes explosive colors, historic images and musical inspiration provided by A Tribe Called Red.

Future Teen Nights are being organized by a Teen Council.

Teens interested in participating on the Council may contact Sandi Franklin at 541-429-7723 or cassandra.franklin@tamastslikt.org.

Participants ages 13-17 may enter and leave the free event but will not be allowed to re-enter. There will be ongoing music videos, pizza and beverages.

Veterans who qualify may apply for a new scholarship through the Walla Walla Community College Worker Retraining Program.

The Stanley A. Neal Veterans scholarship was created to honor local veterans who need assistance paying tuition and school fees, said Kelly Snell, Worker Retraining manager.

Funds for the award came from donations raised at the first annual Walk a Mile for a Veteran event held April 13 at WWCC.

It was named for Dayton native and WWII veteran Stanley A. Neal, who ran a mechanic shop and gas station in Dayton and was known for under-charging families for repairs who were undergoing tough times.

Like many veterans, he served honorably, came home and lived up to high military and family values and served his community, Kelly said.

The WWCC Worker Retraining program aides local students in gaining valuable workforce training. For more information on Worker Retraining and the Neal scholarship contact Kelly at 509-524-5141.
