Dance show comparable to big-city performances

Wow. Hats off to Phil Morin for putting on the most spectacular dance show I have ever attended.

Having lived in some major cities in this country and attended many professional dance programs, the one that was performed over the weekend was one of the best I have ever seen. The talent and creativity involved in choreographing and performing the dances was phenomenal. Weve got some superb talent on this peninsula, and it certainly showed.

While waiting in line for tickets we were treated to the musical talent of the Midnight Sun Trio.

The invited dancers from Kenai Central High School, the Nikiski Alumni, the North Star Elementary Tiniklers and Soldotna High School performed with high energy and enthusiasm and contributed to the show. Nikiskis dance troupe carried the rest of the show with dance after dance of energetic talent.

I cannot even begin to describe the final dance, Omega. The powerful music combined with the spectacular performance took my breath away. The 20-minute dance was jam packed with action and drama. This was a quality performance, and each and every one of the dancers involved poured their heart and soul into the production.

Im sure this performance could pack the house another weekend; I know many people who would watch it again!

Thank you Phil Morin, Sherry Matson, Darcy Swanson, Chris Morin, Annett OConnell, Midnight Sun Trio, North Star Tiniklers, KCHS, SoHi, Nikiski Alumni Dancers and Nikiski Dance Troupe for sharing your dedication, talent and your time with this very grateful community. It is my fervent hope that there will be future productions of this quality to enrich our lives here on the peninsula.

Annie Get Your Gun provides awesome community entertainment

I would just like to say congratulations to all who were involved in the performance of Annie Get Your Gun. It was a fantastic play.

For those who didnt attend, you dont know what you missed; and for those of you that did, you know how much time and effort was put into this play. Its a real blessing to know we have such talent in our community.

I would hope to see more plays in our local community and would hope that the community would come out in force to support them. I know it was a great effort to put this play together and that countless hours were taken from parents, spouses, brothers and sisters; however, it was well worth it, and Im sure all involved will remember it as a wonderful experience.

Again, I say, job well done.

Era is patron to potters exhibition

The Kenai Potters Guild is grateful that Mike LeNorman, Era Aviation director of sales, promptly approved a passenger ticket for the Kenai Clay Exhibition juror to travel Anchorage-Kenai round trip. This donation is very meaningful to the guilds ability to meet its exhibition production expense. Thank you, Era.

Years of service make a difference

On behalf of the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District, and the instructors and students in the vocational programs, we would like to express our appreciation for the many years of service M. Harry Lockwood has provided to the School To Careers Advisory Committee. His knowledge of careers and caring attitude for the students of the district has been an asset to the entire district and will be missed as he steps down as chairman of the School To Careers Advisory Committee.

Ben Eveland, vocational coordinator, Kenai Peninsula Borough School District

Newspapers put to good use

My thanks to the Peninsula Clarion for its generous donation of newspapers for use in a class at Wildwood Correctional Facility. Class members learned much about using the newspaper as a resource and appreciated the opportunity to have their own copies.
