10 Years Ago: The annual Southern Ute Health Services Kids Fair took place Friday, March 4 in the SunUte Community Center, receiving a “healthy” attendance of 213 kids and adults from tribal departments and schools. Health Services staffers gave students a chance to see the effects of unhealthy food firsthand, while the hands-on Wildlife exhibit showcased a stuffed turkey. While most of the booths were informational, SunUte and the Southern Ute Indian Montessori Academy gave the kids a few athletic challenges, included an obstacle course.
