POSTPONED: Soccer Banquet

The Sts'ailes Soccer Banquet that was scheduled to take place on Sunday, November 7, 2010 at the Chehalis School Gym has been postponed due to the recent loss in Tzeachten.

This event was potluck style; therefore, we encourage all food that was prepared for today be brought over to the family in need in Tzeachten. 

Apologies for the short notice. Please pass on the message to your families and friends. 

Important Reminder

Hello Sts’ailes!

Just a friendly reminder that the nights are coming earlier and there are a limited number of street lights on the reserve, so if you are driving please drive at a safe speed and keep a lookout for community members walking along the road.

To those of you who are walking please be mindful that even though a vehicle has headlights it is still difficult to see at night, especially when it is raining.  It is always good to wear reflective items such as reflective wrist or ankle bands or glow material or items that are available at dollar stores. At the very least it’s a good idea to wear bright clothing such as bright yellow or white.

So everyone walking and driving, don’t assume and be safe! Thank You!

Happy Halloween From Sts'ailes!

Happy Halloween Everyone, from Sts'ailes!

Here are a few tips to stay safe and have and enjoyable Halloween:

See and Be Seen

• For greater visibility during dusk and darkness, decorate or trim costumes with reflective tape that will glow in the beam of a car’s headlights. Bags or sacks should also be light colored or decorated with reflective tape.

• To easily see and be seen, children should also carry flashlights.

• Teach children to never assume they are seen by a vehicle. Small children may be especially difficult to spot in the dark.

• Remind children to look both ways before crossing the street.

Trick or Treating

• Due to the number of children out on the street on Halloween evening, motorists should be especially careful driving along city streets, especially in neighborhoods, during designated trick-or-treat hours.

• Trick-or-treaters should use sidewalks instead of the street whenever possible and always cross at crosswalks.

• Young children should always be accompanied by an adult or an older, responsible child.

• Make sure older children trick-or-treat with friends and carry a cell phone for quick communication.

• Children and their parents should be cautioned about accepting unwrapped treats.

So again have a safe and Happy Halloween!
