To the Editor,
As chairman of the North Carolina Indian Cultural Center, I and my board of directors would like to invite the citizens of Robeson and adjoining counties to come and support the center’s New Beginning Project 2012.
The NCICC, formerly known as Riverside Recreation Center, has been a fixture in Robeson County and for American Indian people for more than 40 years. It has been a place where native and non-native families have come to enjoy outdoor activities. Oftentimes, it was the only recreational park for Indian people because of earlier times of racial segregation.
Unfortunately, the park has suffered due to lack of funding and vandalism. It’s vitally important that we preserve this park for our children and future generations, and your donations will make a significant difference in achieving our goal, and enabling us the much needed funding for repair and refurbishing the pool, lake and facilities.
We wish to thank those of you that support and continue to support the effort of the NCICC and its board of directors. If you wish to bring your ideas to the NCICC board, please come to the meetings that will be held the first Saturday of each month starting May 5 at 10 a.m. at 447 Recreation Center Road, Maxton. If you would like to make a donation, or appearance on the NCICC agenda, or have any questions concerning the NCICC, please feel free to contact me at 910-521-1400 or through email at email@example.com.
