Kenai Rotarians teach seniors valuable business, life lessons
Mrs. DeVolld's senior English classes would like to take this opportunity to thank the Kenai Rotary Club for the gracious donation of their time and energy.
For the sixth consecutive year, caring Rotarians have presented the business ethics seminar "Not for Sale" to KCHS seniors. This program teaches students how to be honest, responsible, ethical employees in today's workplace. Many important topics and scenarios were discussed: shoplifting, employee theft of merchandise and time, conflicts of interest, customer relations, sexual harassment, corporate giving, whistle blowing and employee discipline.
In addition, presenters also spoke on the importance of being reliable and prompt, showing respect for your co-workers and customers, and remaining honest in all situations.
We would specifically like to thank the following Rotarians for their hard work and great presentations, and for nurturing the future employees of the Kenai Peninsula: Barry Eldridge, Wes Keller, Randy Daly, Steve Howell, Joe Gallagher, Nelson Amen, Marty Anderson, Duane Bannock, Scott Cunningham, Suzie Kendrick, Kristine Holdridge, Jim Carter, Lisa Parker, Jeff Belloumini and Matt Streiff. This community is a better place to live and work because of you.

Volunteers who made Christmas drive big success are appreciated
As the new year starts, it is nice to reflect on the positive aspects of our community and our ability to support each other when needed. The Sears Elementary-Mountain View-Kenai Middle School Christmas Drive Committee sure met the challenge of providing the assistance to 54 families this past Christmas. The drive included food for the family and clothing and toys for the children.
A generous group of shoppers and fundraisers chaired by Kimb Remsen and including Maureen Boyle, Megan O'Neil and Kelly Williams were able to purchase and sort food, clothing and toys for these families. They also manned a distribution center for the drive. Thanks to those folks for their tireless dedication to those in need in our community. Their hundreds of hours of volunteer efforts are appreciated by all!
Thanks also goes out to Kenai Middle School for a successful canned food drive and to all the local businesses who supported this holiday drive as well.

Many contribute to success of SoHi ski team's prom dress sale
The Soldotna High School cross country ski team would like to thank Glenn Martin and Martin Mines for donating store space and equipment in the Peninsula Center Mall in Soldotna for its Prom Dress Consignment Sale on Jan. 25.
Gottschalks and Beemun's provided very welcomed dress racks for displaying the gowns and dresses brought to the sale.
We also would like to thank Passions for placing their prom dresses up for liquidation at the sale and donating 30 percent of the proceeds to the team.
We greatly appreciated the tremendous response we received from the community for our first sale. Many beautiful dresses were brought into the sale, and we valued the 30 percent donation the team received from each dress-gown that sold as well as those who donated the full amount of the sale of their dress(es). With prom dresses traditionally only worn once for a few hours, we had a wonderful selection of very high quality dresses and gowns many young women will be able to enjoy again at affordable prices.
We can't forget all the great businesses around town that allowed our flyers in their windows, the peninsula schools' help in advertising, the Peninsula Clarion for its community section and the local radio stations for the community service announcements they made.
Be sure to call your graduated daughters and ask if they are ready to let go of their dress(es) from years past as we will be hosting another sale on March 8. Watch for location and details to be advertised. Thanks again to a wonderful community.
