Contributors to Day of Service thanked

On September 21, close to 300 members and friends of all ages from the Kenai, Sterling, and Soldotna congregations of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints participated in the Northwest Area Annual Day of Service by volunteering their time and personal equipment to work on a variety of community projects. We would like to thank the local governments, non-profit organizations, and individuals in the Central Peninsula who opened up opportunities and provided resources to perform services at the Kasilof and Soldotna cemeteries, Heritage Place, Habitat for Humanity, Lee Shore Center, The Way Cafe, several houses in need of repairs, and other locations. Thanks also go to several businesses, including Twin Rocks Enterprises, Peninsula Pumping, Tree House Restaurant, and Got Rock Transportation, for making equipment, professional services, and other resources available toward accomplishing these projects.
