Students efforts raise funds for drug rehabilitation center
This is a thank you to the students and staff who organized and put on the Central Peninsula General Hospital fund-raiser talent show Jan. 20 at Soldotna High School.
Due to their efforts, approximately $500 was donated to the upcoming CPGH drug rehabilitation center that is to be built on K-Beach Road. This center will benefit our entire central peninsula.
Kudos to Veronica Anderson, Ryan Verney and Darbie Murphy for their efforts. Special thanks also to the young men and women from the various schools who performed in the talent show. Well done!
We both graduated from Kenai Central High School over 30 years ago, when there was only one high school prom to attend in our central peninsula area. What a wonderful idea to recapture that unity we all felt back then!
However, on Jan. 20, we enjoyed the talents of the students who gave of themselves to benefit our entire community. It is unfortunate that the all-school prom was scheduled on a night that competed with the talent show fund-raiser.
