The Great Plains Tribal Chairman;s Association extends our deepest appreciation for all the years of service David Melmer has given to the tribes in the Great Plains and we extend our prayers and best wishes for his future plans. David has been a constant companion to our meetings and events over the years, always ready with pen in hand to write our story to the world. The Great Plains doesn't always get good media coverage and David has done a good job for us trying to tell our story.
Thank you, David Melmer. The special interest you took in our tribes and your expert writing will be greatly missed.
