Winter Storm Expected This Weekend, Could Affect Sunday's Membership Meeting

Feather News

A winter storm is expected to hit Mohegan this weekend, beginning Saturday morning and possibly leaving a half-foot of snow before it ends on Sunday morning.

Should Sunday's Tribal membership meeting be canceled, it would likely be rescheduled for the following week. The Feather News will post a notice on the website on Sunday if it learns of the meeting cancelation.

If the meeting goes on as planned, remember that the location has been changed from the Tribal government building to Salon D in the Uncas Ballroom at the casino. The location change has been noted in a separate letter mailed by tribal officials and in this week's Wuskuso, according to sources. Those members living out of town who typically receive their Wuskuso newsletter after the weekend - as opposed to locals who get the newsletter on Friday or Saturday - may not know of the location change. No reason has been given for the location change.

Unfortunately, Tribal members are not given specifics on what will be discussed in the membership meetings in advance as is customary in professional settings so, if the meeting is canceled, we may have to just continue to wait to find out how we will be affected by decisions made by our election officials. The separate letter mailed to members about the meeting also does not say what decisions the Tribal Council has made.
