Sterling club appreciates support from community
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 Brian Cameron, Rob Chippone and McLane Surveyors for the survey and as-built work. The survey and as-built work was one of the first steps needed for the planning of a new multi-use hockey rink-basketball court planned for construction this summer.
We would also 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 business that sponsored the day's events, another big thank you. These businesses include: ACS Communications, Beemun's Variety Store, Big Kmart, Bing Brown's, Blakeley Auctioneers, Bub's Pizza, Burger King, Coca Cola Alaska, Columbia Paint, Custom Seafood Processors, Fred Meyer, Frito-Lay, Gagnon and Sons, Gloria's Hair Salon, Godfather's Pizza, Hair Force, Martin Mines, McDonald's, Mike's Welding, Mykel's Restaurant, Northcountry Fair, Peninsula Harley Davidson, Sadler's Home Furnishings, Sterling Baptist Church, Sterling Car Quest and Hardware, Sterling Chevron, Sterling Tool Rental, Strung-a-long Beads by Jean, Suburban Propane, Sweeney's Clothing, Wilderness Way, Willow Picker Enterprises, and those businesses that wish to remain anonymous
Because of 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.

Fund-raiser for Ryan Nelson brings out best in community
I would like to take this opportunity to compliment all "players" in the benefit held Saturday night at the Soldotna Elks Club for Ryan Nelson. My husband and I attended this fund-raiser and I have to say that it was one of the very best events of this type we have ever participated in. Those in charge of organizing did an outstanding job! Our evening was relaxing, fun and even entertaining. The meal was excellent. The auctioneer was terrific with a great sense of humor and the food and drink servers were friendly and courteous.
To all those people who were "behind the lines" (including those who set up the photo display first viewed as folks entered the building, those in the kitchen cooking, those who volunteered to clean up afterwards, the many people who hit the streets requesting items for the auction, as well as the business owners and individuals who donated those items, the folks who prepared the room, set up the tables and exhibits and organized all the items, etc.) you all did a fantastic job! It was clearly evident that a lot of love and hard work went into organizing this benefit.
I was quite touched by this event and am very pleased and proud to see such tremendous support from our community. Isn't this what life is all about -- people helping people. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ryan and his family.
