Sterling

Hi, neighbors.

Sterling Head Start had its second annual fund-raiser dinner, show and auction April 2. I was told it was sold out and was a huge success.

The staff expressed its appreciation to the individuals, business owners and the community at large that supported the program and want them to know how much their generosity is appreciated. It couldn't have happened without their tremendous support.

Congratulations to the parents and staff who make this program happen for Sterling children.

Sterling Lutheran Church has announced its weekly prayer breakfast on Tuesdays at 7:30 a.m. and its weekly evening fellowship potluck starting at 6:30 p.m. Visitors are welcome.

The church is at McCall Avenue off of Swanson River Road. If you turn by the old Zip Mart, it is the first driveway on the right.

April 4 was a special day for John Feero. He and many of his friends celebrated his 75 birthday. They celebrated with cake and ice cream at the Sterling Senior Center.

The highlight of the celebration was a serenade by Geoann Riechert and Glenda Graham. They sang to him and presented him with a certificate of appreciation for being the best seven-and-a-half-decades-old geezer.

Those who attended say the song was really funny and lots of people turned out to wish him a happy birthday. Happy birthday, John.

Allan Miller's class has an offer from DirectTV and NASA to allow it to access a series of educational channels for free. The catch is that the class needs to arrange for a dish and hook-up.

Due to the orientation of the DirectTV satellite, it needs to be a 6-foot dish or larger. The kids are hoping someone in the community has a large dish that they are no longer using and are willing to donate.

The class already has been given the transceivers and just need the dish to be able to receive many educational shows, which includes Miller's primary interest— the NASA channel.

It sounds like this might be beneficial for the students and if any community members have an idea on how to resolve this problem, call Miller at the school.

There was a meeting at the senior center last Wednesday so people could sign up for the cancer Relay for Life Sterling senior team.

Relay for Life is a 24-hour event to raise money for cancer research and patient programs.

The relay will be held at Skyview High School in Soldotna on June 3 and 4.

If you wish to be part of the team, call Glenda Graham at 262-2943 or Geoann Reichert at 260-6630.

I hope you have adjusted to the daylight and the new spring hours. Have a great week.
