Thank you, to all who supported, donated, and volunteered at our 2013 Dragonfly Gala. Thanks to you, the annual celebration of Southern California's Native American cultures was a huge success. We're thrilled that we awarded Daniel McCarthy the Dragonfly Award for his high-soaring achievements in saving and sharing Southern California Native American cultures.

Gala on

Our website is down temporarily, due to problems at the host site. It should be back up soon. 
Also, the Silver Fire is nowhere near our Gala location. 
So, we'll keep calm and Gala on.

Dragonfly Gala!

It's almost time for the Dragonfly Gala! Yes, our wonderful gathering to celebrate Southern California's Native American cultures is scheduled Saturday, Aug. 10, 2013.

The food is always a fabulous feast, but this year, it will be even more fabulous. Look who's in the kitchen!

Yes, it's the famed Chia Cafe group led by Daniel McCarthy. They'll offer a sumptious bounty, and some tastes of Native foods, too. Don't miss.

Daniel McCarthy will have to come out of the kitchen at some point because he's also receiving this year's Dragonfly Award for his soaring achievements in saving and sharing Southern California's Native American cultures.

This year's theme is Heritage Keepers, important to Dorothy Ramon Learning Center since 1993, when we began saving and sharing cultures, languages, history, and traditional arts. It's our 10-year birthday, but we'll also pay tribute to the City of Banning, which is celebrating its 100th birthday. We'll have some special 1800s music.

And of course we'll also have our wonderful, timeless bird singing and dancing, and Native American flute music, too, from our own Dragonfly Winds Ensemble flute class that meets monthly at the Center. 

Don't miss:
• Cultural exhibits highlighting our Native American heritage
• Our famed silent auction
• Special live auction
• Much, much more!
