Riverside County Board of Supervisors Honors the Morongo Band of Mission Indians

Standing before hundreds of elected, business and community leaders, the Riverside County Board of Supervisors honored the Morongo Band of Mission Indians on Nov. 19th with a resolution celebrating  the 30th anniversary of the Morongo Thanksgiving Outreach Program and recognizing the tribe’s ongoing commitment to helping those in need. 
 

Each of the five county supervisors took turns reading passages from the resolution to the 600 people gathered for the annual State of the County luncheon at the Morongo Casino, Resort & Spa before they presented the framed document to Morongo Tribal Vice Chair Mary Ann Andreas. 
 
The County resolution stated that  “the Riverside County Board of Supervisors does hereby extend its sincere gratitude and heartfelt thanks to the Morongo Band of Mission Indians for the tribe’s longstanding generosity and aid to the less fortunate on the occasion of the tribe’s 30th annual Thanksgiving Outreach Program.”
