The Cherokee Nation is scheduled to cut the ribbon on a new $4.2 million child development center in Stilwell.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for 2 p.m. Friday for the 19,000-square-foot child care center. The center will quadruple the size of an old center that was built in 1969. The new center features eight classrooms, four playgrounds, a culturally inspired reading circle area and a bell tower atop the building.
