Team Alaska gets a special welcoming surprise

Posted: Sunday, March 05, 2006

Hours of time, donations from organizations across the state, and volunteer effort went into preparing 400 “goodie bags” for Team Alaska’s at Kenai Peninsula College.

The boxes of items were brought to Kenai Peninsula College last Friday by members of the Arctic Winter Games staff. Some of the items included: a pre-paid AT&T phone card, an Arctic Winter Games coloring book, souvenirs from the Alaska Sea Life Center and much more.

KPC’s Student Services division volunteered to prepare the bags, according to Bill Howell, Student Services director. The group, and four members of the local community, spent about two hours stuffing the gym bags.

“We were happy to help with the games and this gave us the opportunity to include a few KPC items in them,” said Howell. The college donated KPC pens, lip balm, jar openers, carabineers, and highlighters, along with the 2006 Spring schedule for classes at the Kenai River Campus.

When the athletes arrived at the college, they consumed 93 pizzas and cases of soda and water. After the feed they were given their bags of goodies and reloaded onto the buses, and made their way toward in processing at the Kenai Airport.
