Letter: Community comes through for SoHi grads

Community comes through for SoHi grads


We are constantly amazed at the generosity and thoughtfulness of the community in which we live. Businesses are asked repeatedly throughout the school year to make donations to student’s activities and inevitably, they do — with great enthusiasm and support!

Soldotna High School’s recent After Graduation party is no exception! The 2017 SOHI graduates were treated to an amazing party at Jumpin’ Junction with an incredible amount of prizes and delicious food, and nearly everything was graciously donated by our incredible local businesses. The kids had a fantastic time and they cannot thank everyone enough for their incredible generosity!
