Sterling club appreciates support of businesses, volunteers

With the support of volunteers and local businesses, the Sterling Community Club continues to grow in membership and make improvements to the Sterling Community Park land.

We would like to thank those volunteers that volunteered their time in support of the Sterling Winter Fun Day helping with the snow removal, games, food, fireworks, membership drive, benefit auction, pie auction and cleanup.

The day was beautiful with over 100 children and adults enjoying the day's festivities.

And to the businesses that sponsored the day's events, another big thank you. These businesses include: Alaska Trading & Loan, Arby's, Big Kmart, Bing Brown's, Blakely Auctioneers, Builders Bargains, Burger King, Chubby Chicken's Carpet, Coca-Cola Alaska, Columbia Paint, Fred Meyer, Gloria's Hair Salon, Godfather's Pizza, Martin Mines, McDonald's, Mike's Welding, Mom & Dad's Grocery, Peninsula Harley Davidson, Ron's Honda, Sadler's Home Furnishings, Sasafrass, Spenard Builders Supply Soldotna and Kenai, Schuck's Auto Supply, Sterling Baptist Church, Sterling Tool Rental, Suburban Propane, Sweeney's Clothing, Three Bears, Verba's, Wilderness Way, Willow Picker Enterprises, and those businesses that wish to remain anonymous.

We would also like to thank those that have donated their time and material to build the hockey goals and maintain the ice rink. They include: Kenny Merkes, Rick Lindley, Mike Lund, Alaska Pipe & Supply, Metal Magic, Peak Oil Field Services and the Soldotna Sports Center.

With the great Kenai Peninsula community spirit and support from volunteers and businesses, the Sterling Community Club continues to maintain and improve the Sterling Community Park for everyone's enjoyment.

Thanks again.
