LT. GOV in Circle

When a plane other than the mail plane lands in Circle we investigate. A large group came to Circle for a meeting at the Community Hall. We asked Chief Jessica if we should leave. No, no, talk to people was her response. One of the first people we spoke to was the LT. Gov. Bryan is native along with his wife and was amazed at the distance we would travel to help out, and was very interested to hear the Elders lunch program received the lions share of the food from the gardens. We traded contact info to brainstorm over the years for the benefit of natives in all the villages. Tanana Chiefs Conference President Victor Joseph said this is the only village that connected gardening and the Elders lunch program. This should be a model for all villages.
