Community Members Enjoy Standing Strong Celebration at Liberty Elementary

Liberty Elementary in Sioux City Thursday night hosts a popular event.

Hundreds of people showed up for the Native Youth Standing Strong Christmas party, co-sponsored by Sioux City Community Schools.

After a meal, drumming and singing, Saint Nick showed up to take pictures with the children and present them with a small gift.

Organizers appreciate the community for helping to make the event a success.

“I think it’s a great time for the community to come together and celebrate the holiday season, have something to eat, gifts are given out, Santa’s here. So it’s just a really exciting time of year. And it’s a really great event for the kids and families here in Sioux City,” says Marisa Cummings, Title VI Board Member.
