Sterling supports its seniors

The community of Sterling is fortunate to have generous and caring people living here. The folks at the Ministry of the Living Stones generously gave of their time and talents Feb. 2 when they came to the Sterling Senior Center and gave the center a thorough housecleaning from the floors to the walls and windows. They gave the senior center the blessing of caring for others in our community.

The Sterling Senior Center held a Japanese dinner to raise funds for its newly acquired handicap-accessible van last Friday. I'd like to thank everyone who attended this successful fund-raiser and contributed with the delicious desserts that were auctioned, to all the wonderful volunteers who helped out, and to the Nee Shee dancers who provided the entertainment. A special thank you goes to Country Foods in Kenai for the donation of all the vegetables for this dinner. The van will soon be on the road.

Teens enjoy karaoke contest

The Kenai Teen Center held a karaoke contest for the youth on the peninsula. On Jan. 25, we offered more than 6,000 songs for our participants.

Voices alone were not the deciding factor; young people were encouraged to dance and put on an entertaining act for their audience. Enthusiasm was the judges' main focus. Duncan Harris and Danielle King were our winners for the contest, both winning sterling silver watches. The entire evening was fun and a complete success. We look forward to trying it again over spring break.

Our appreciation and special thanks not only goes to the participants, but all of the people who helped make this event a success. The Pizza Boys once again came through with their support, supplying a variety of pizzas for everyone. Mic. Hoggers' Karaoke provided time, equipment and wonderful music.

Also, thanks to the entire staff at the Teen Center for all of their planning and great teamwork. Many joined in with the kids and made it really enjoyable.
