Youth fortunate to have supportive community

We live in an amazingly generous community. Hopefully you took the time to read through the long, long list of donors and volunteers, in the Clarion’s April 20 edition. Everyone listed helped make the Soldotna High School After Prom party a success. Thanks to the cash and other donated items made by numerous local businesses and parents, students who attended the party won many incredible prizes. Special thanks goes to Brian and Crystal Walden with SLP and Monica Adams at Central Peninsula Community Health Center for their large cash donations. There were over 80 additional business donors and over 30 parents (listed in the Clarion) who donated prizes, time, money and food. Each of you are very much appreciated. The party could never have happened had it not been for people like Tammy North, Dane and Christina Dahlgren, Mike and Bekki Hatten, Tammy Glaves, Michelle Parks, Lori Weeks, Monica English, Soldotna Middle School administration and custodial crew, Matt Fischer, Soldotna High School office staff and administration, and especially Ms. Meggean Bos at Soldotna High School. The youth in our community are so fortunate to have the support of many wonderful businesses and parents. Thank you for your continued support of our youth.
