One of the most satisfying parts of reaching out and helping our neighbors is getting to share in the positive results. We at Habematolel Pomo of Upper Lake are particularly happy to join in with our neighbors in celebrating the first night home game of the Upper Lake High School football team, the Cougars. This development is possible after the installation of field lights that the Upper Lake Pomo provided a substantial contribution towards finishing earlier this year.
For years, the team was unable to practice and play at night because of the absence of adequate lighting. This meant that players, coaches and fans were often left to sit under the hot summer sun, something that presented a health risk during the early months of the season.
The game set for the evening of September 15 against Rincon Valley Christian marks a new era for the Cougars, and the creation of a new Friday night tradition for the whole community to share in. Win or lose, the team knows they have the backing of a passionate, loving fan base.
It’s through our local connections that we are able to continue our way of life. By reaching out to our friends and neighbors, we ensure that the region we call home will be a better place for all of us to live and grow.
See you all under the big lights…Go Cougars!
