Greetings from frosty Kasilof.
I hope your week is off to a good start despite the irritating cold snap we are going through. I console myself with seed catalogs and the thought that it's only temporary.
Though many may already know; a lady from Copper Center made Tustumena 200 sled dog race history last week by being the first woman to win the Kenai Peninsulas, only Iditarod qualifier. Congratulations to Jessica Hendricks and her amazing dog team.
The Kasilof public library is hosting a Scholastic book fair through Friday. A variety of popular and award winning new children's books are available for sale this week at "your" local library. It is located inside Tustumena school and its extended hours this week are Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For further information regarding the book fair or the library, call 252-1120.
