From of the Board of Directors of the Kenai Senior Connection, Inc., Director of the Kenai Senior Center and aLL the seniors, we wish to express our thanks for the outpouring of community support for the "March for Meals" fundraiser on March 30. The people of the Kenai Peninsula, again, showed what a generous caring place we live.
Thank you to all who purchased tickets for the dinner, those who came and enjoyed the fun-filled evening of the pie auction, those who purchased the scrumptious pies, those who came to support us and had a great time!
A big thank you to Ms. Davis, teacher at Kenai Central High School and the students that helped set up the dining room, and served during the evening. A big thank you to those who supported us through monetary donations, who believe in our mission of serving the home-bound seniors and "so No Senior Goes Hungry."

We couldn't have had such a successful pie auction if it were not for the people who donated their time and made the eye appealing, and mouth-watering and tasty pies.

A gracious thank you the City Manager, Rick Koch, for purchasing a pie then offering it for re-sell, making it top purchase for the evening and then winning "Split the Pot" and donating it back to Senior Connection Inc.
A huge thank you to all the Senior Volunteers, Bull Don and the Moose Nuggets, who donated their time and shared their musical talents, Carol Bannock, from the Kenai Chamber, and our favorite auctioneer, Duane Bannock that "worked" the audience and brought the big prices for the pie sales.
