On Oct. 27, the Pawhuska Indian Village Five-Man Board held an appreciation dinner to recognize local residents and organizations that have worked with the village this past year as it worked on plans for a new dance arbor, grounds maintenance and a master plan for the residential community.
Board chairwoman Paula Stabler said plans are underway to map out future prospects and improvements for the village. She said the board is working with planning, architecture and Osage-owned design company Blue Star Studio Inc. on the project. The company keeps a Pawhuska office in the business development center west of the village and also worked on plans for the new dance arbor project and is owned by Jon Red Corn.
Stabler said a Nov. 10 village meeting is planned to discuss future village plans at Wakon Iron Hall.
Afterward, the residents, families and visitors enjoyed several rounds of “really fast” bingo for prizes and T-shirts.
