Our last event of the year, Redbird’s 2013 Blanket, Toy and School Supplies Drive and Mini-Powwow, takes place on November 23 at the Simi Valley Town Center Mall Community Room, and we will be joined by the northern drum Blue Star and the southern drum Crooked Hat.  Michael Willis (best known as the Chiropractor at Better Health and Wellness of Simi Valley) will be our Master of Ceremonies, and 2013/2014 Children of Many Colors Powwow Princess Katianna Warren will be dancing with us.  Michael Angelo Runningwind will dance the first dance, making the path clean for the rest of us, as grass dancers did in days of old.
Everyone is welcome; this year we are accepting gently used clothing items and blankets,  as well as new blankets, toys and school supplies; please see the flier for details about what we are looking for and where items go.

 THE ACADEMY COMMEMORATES JFK ANNIVERSARY

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences will present a special screening of the documentary “John F. Kennedy: Years of Lightning, Day of Drums,” on Friday, November 22, the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination. Oscar®-winning writer Aaron Sorkin will introduce the commemorative screening, which will take place at 7:30 p.m. at the Academy’s Linwood Dunn Theater in Hollywood.

Written, directed and scored by Bruce Herschensohn and narrated by Gregory Peck, the documentary examines Kennedy’s legacy and spotlights many significant events from his presidency, including the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Bay of Pigs invasion and the launch of the Peace Corps. The film also contains rare color footage from Kennedy’s funeral.
