Greetings from Kasilof.

I'm on my second gallon of windshield fluid and the lines at the car wash are long, it must be just a bit closer to — dare I say it — breakup.

There is a meeting coming up for the Central Emergency Services coordinated volunteer effort. If you are interested in volunteering you should pick up an application at the CES office in Soldotna and plan to attend the meeting March 16. Time and place to be announced.

According to Kasilof Regional Historical Association member Gary Titus the film "Hunting trip on the Kenai" was recently located in the library of the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

"The film documents a 1936 hunting trip starting at Kenai Lake and rare footage of crossing Kenai Lake, Cooper's Landing and a trip down Kenai River with river man and guide Hank Lucas. After a stopover at Hjalmar Anderson's homestead on Caribou Island on Skilak Lake they switch from boats to horse and then into the mountains for sheep hunting.

After a successful hunt for sheep they continue on to the Funny River moose country. After securing several moose, one with a 67-inch spread, they return to Skilak Lake on the Moosehorn trail, with a swim in the Killey River along the way. Then even rarer footage of floating down the lower Kenai River to Kenai," Titus said.

The public is invited to join the Kasilof Regional Historical Association as they present the film at 7 p.m. Thursday at the New Life Christian Fellowship church at 8/10 of a mile down Kalifornsky Beach Road from the Sterling Highway intersection.This film is approximately 50 minutes long and is a fund-raiser for the KHRA.

Many thanks to member Dave Letzring for going the extra mile in getting this news to me.

Happy anniversary wishes to Jerry and Inez Russell. They celebrated 50 years of marriage this month. Also to Don and Mary Jones and John and Suzie Cook.

Belated birthday wishes to Paul Zimmerman and Nancy Leamon. Kasilof folks having a birthday this week are Terry Dawson, Ina Lewis, John Cook, Steve Ramberg, Doris Williams, Bud Knapp and Stephanie Lambe.
