I would like to express my sincere thank you to the community for recognizing and supporting the efforts of ROC the Kenai. ROC the Kenai stands for “Respect Our Community.” My Caring for the Kenai project of finding a solution to the excessive fish waste and trash problem on the Kenai Beaches developed into a two year passion. This summer, numerous community members realized the significant dilemma that our beaches face during the month of July and helped out in many ways. I especially want to thank Jason Floyd, Natasha Ala, Tony Travers, Bob Malloy, Pat Porter, Brendyn Shiflea, Glenda Feeken, Kenai Rotary, KSRM radio, KDLL radio, the kids of 4-H and Boys & Girls Club, Jessica Paxton, Juliet Bramante, Keira Stroh, Rylie and Caden Fields, Miles Jones, Katy Knacksteadt, Merrill Sikorski and the Peninsula Clarion. Also, a huge thank you to the Kenai Watershed Forum for providing T-shirts and Alaska Department of Fish and Wildlife for garbage bags.
Keep ROCin’ the Kenai!
