CIRI and The CIRI Foundation’s annual Friendship Potlatches are just around the corner, so mark your calendars.
First held in 1985, the Friendship Potlatches offer CIRI shareholders an opportunity to socialize and celebrate important cultural traditions with family and friends. Every year, the potlatch program includes cultural entertainment, children’s activities, Alaska Native arts and crafts booths, CIRI-affiliated nonprofit information booths, door prizes and a meal that includes traditional Alaska Native foods.
Please RSVP and help CIRI plan for enough food for attendees and their families: Visit ciri.com/RSVP to RSVP online or call (907) 263-5191 or (800) 764-CIRI and choose option 5.
CIRI shareholders who are interested in displaying or selling arts and crafts can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (907) 263-5113 for more information.
