Northern California Osage to hold Aug. 12 gathering in Petaluma

The Northern California Osage organization is announcing its next gathering will be held Saturday, Aug. 12 in Petaluma.

The event will be held at the Petaluma Community Center at 320 N. McDowell Blvd. Previous NCO gatherings have been held here.

NCO Treasurer Karen Elliott said more agenda details will be forthcoming once speakers and invitees are confirmed.

The NCO website is at www.northerncaliforniaosage.org

During past NCO gatherings, Osage Nation elected and government officials have attended the event to discuss program service availability for out-of-state Osages and updates on the three-branch government. Also during election years, Osages interested in seeking office have been invited to past NCO meetings to meet with constituents and to discuss their campaigns, but the next election year will be 2018 for the Nation.
