Photos: Local Parker Valley resident, Jon Villalobos and his crew worked in 108 degree temperatures to empty the barrack in preparation for its relocation.
     


















      
     The asbestos inspector visited the site last week and we are in the process of obtaining the necessary permits.  The barrack moving company will begin bracing the barrack on June 18, 2012.
      We have a tentative plan to relocate the barrack on June 28, 2012.  
There are plans to have a blessing ceremony for the barrack relocation and the filming of the actual barrack relocation by filmmaker, Carolina Konda.
      We are planning to have a special blessing ceremony in coordinating with Colorado River Indian Tribal Council member, Johnny Hill.
      Stay tuned for more information on details of the barrack move and the blessing celebration, if you are interested in attending...........
