Letter to the editor: Thanks for support at Soldotna seniors’ bazaar

Soldotna Area Senior Citizens, Inc. would like to thank everybody involved in our Summer Bazaar and Quilt Show this past weekend.


A huge shoutout to Barely Threaded Quilting for setting up the quilt show. The People’s Choice Award was a close vote, with the winning entry pieced by JoAnne Biegel and quilted by Lily Huesch. Second place was “Big Blooms,” pieced and quilted by Theresa Baker. The bazaar was successful in gathering funds to provide area seniors with nutrition, transportation, and assistance for many clients in our community, as well as promoting area small businesses.

Also, a special thanks to the numerous volunteers who helped hang and arrange the quilts, hosted the quilt show, the many volunteers who helped to set up the bazaar, those who made and donated items for our bake sale, and those volunteers who worked long hours in our kitchen, serving up milkshakes, nachos, burgers, and hot dogs. We could not accomplish our mission without the large volume of volunteer hours donated each and every day. The Soldotna Senior Center serves area seniors from Soldotna, Ridgeway, and Funny River. The opportunity to provide food, transportation, information and assistance to our clients is only possible through your participation in our fundraising. You are a vital part of our efforts.

John Walker
