Singing into 2018

The Southern Ute Multi-Purpose Facility was filled with singing and drumming, as people gathered to bring in 2018 in a good way. The annual New Year’s Eve gathering brought together many for feasting, songs and prayers on Sunday, Dec. 31. The annual event was organized by Neida Chackee and family members. The potluck dinner was provided by family and community members.
