Dave Thomas, Sachem Smoke Sky, took over the chairman position of the Special Events Committee earlier this spring. He takes the place of Mike Gerhardt, MM Ajita, who also currently serves as the summer camp Mic-O-Say Director.
Gerhardt served as the committee’s chairman for 4 years. “As the outgoing chairman, I am very pleased to have such an excellent replacement!” Said Gerhardt about the changing roles.
Thomas, who also serves as the Tribe’s Financial Director, is looking forward to sustaining and building upon the previous success of the committee. “It’s going to be a challenge. Mike Gerhardt has set the bar extremely high,” were some of Thomas’s thoughts on the transition. View the full interview above for more of what Dave had to say about his new role.
Responsibilities of the Special Events Committee include organizing annual Tribal events such as the Pow-Wow, Conclave and Feast, as well as other events like the yearly Eagle Scout and Council Recognition Dinners.
