Many make celebration a success

Many thanks to the community volunteers who made the 10th Annual Return of the Salmon Celebration, May 20, at Heritage Place such a great success.

Heritage Place residents look forward every year to the Return of the Salmon Celebration where they, Soldotna Seniors, Kenaitze Elders, Kenai Seniors, Heritage Place staff, and the families of residents are treated to a great salmon and halibut dinner with special side dishes and home-grown entertainment.

A large round of applause to Gwen Johnson and Kathy Gensel for organizing this annual event. Special thanks to the Soldotna Rotary Club and Members for helping cook. Thank you to Jim Fellman, Mike Krohn, Matthew Pyhala, Irv Carlisle and Ed Krohn for donating the fish. Thank you to Central Peninsula Hospital for the use of the Traeger grill used to cook the salmon. The roasted corn on the cob was a huge success. Thank you to Irv Carlisle for donating and cooking the corn and to Ken Laing for loaning the corn roaster. Thanks to Gary Toombs and Coca Cola for donating soft drinks and to Soldotna Senior Center for their huge bowl of cole slaw. Many thanks to the Heritage Place kitchen and maintenance staff for their contributions and assistance in bringing it together and tying up loose ends.

Thank you to Bull Don and the Moose Nuggets for the beautiful music.

Thank you to everyone who donated their time and effort to making this year’s Celebration a special day for our community’s seniors.
