On Friday, August 26, 2022 the H.E.R.O. committee hosted at Back to School Bash for the Ohi:yo’ community at the Allegany Community Center.
The event featured a college fair and career fair where students and their parents could ask questions about the college admission process, inquire about upcoming deadlines and make connections with various reps. Seneca Nation departments were on hand to explain the services they offer and provide information about employment opportunities that are available. Free supplies, goodie bags and handouts were plenty at both fairs.
There was a backpack giveaway, an amazing selection of door prizes and many exciting activities for the children to enjoy including a face painting station, balloon artistry, henna tattoos, indoor bounce house, outdoor inflatable water slides and much more.
To top off the evening, families were treated to a complimentary dinner.
Reminder to Cattaraugus Residents: The Back to School Bash, sponsored by the Cattaraugus Education Department is scheduled for Tuesday, September 20th at the CCC! See flyer below for details.
