Community spirit fuels donations

The Sterling Elementary School PTA would like to thank Unocal Alaska Resources for its very generous monetary donation of $1,500, which will go toward the purchase of over 30 new Wizard 2 portable keyboard training computers.

These portable computer keyboards will help our early elementary students learn essential keyboarding skills at the primary grade level. We are very excited about the opportunity this wonderful donation has provided for our students.

The Sterling Elementary School PTA also would like to extend its gratitude to Peak Oilfield Services for its support of our school in purchasing a full page ad for our school yearbook. Without the civic-minded contributions made by such businesses we would not be able to create for our children and their parents such recorded lasting memories that school yearbooks provide.

We really appreciate when our community works together for the benefit of children.

Lynn Lund, PTA president Sterling Elementary School

Donation aids learning experience

Soldotna Middle School's Quest students will be traveling to the Kachemak Bay Learning Center in Otter Cove. Unocal, Jerry V. Horn VFW Memorial Post Auxiliary and Schlumberger have graciously donated money for this wonderful learning experience. We appreciate you and your donation toward the leaders of tomorrow!

In addition, Seekins Ford has donated the use of a van to help transport students to and from State Future Problem Solving here in Soldotna. The problem solvers greatly appreciate your contribution.

Group effort focuses on safety

I just want to express my gratitude to Terry Rahlfs and the Fred Meyer Corp. for allowing the Soldotna Safety Day 2001 to take place in their parking lot. Having such an excellent location and support made the difference.

Special recognition should go to Nancy Mitchell of Soldotna State Farm for being the catalyst and investing in bringing awareness to safety issues by working in cooperation with other community groups. She donated her staff, time, finances and freebies for this event. Fred Meyer donated bikes, gift certificates for the coloring contest, hot dogs for the DARE booth, the location and joined with State Farm to bring the favorite of the day, Mr. Twisters. Beemun's donated two helmets, and Mike Morgan donated his sound service for the presentations. Thank you also needs to go to Nancy Mitchell, Terry Rahlfs, Sgt. Towell and Jane Fellman for serving on the committee and our judges -- Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor Dale Bagley, Soldotna Mayor Dave Carey and Clarion editor Lori Evans.

There were several different groups that were represented in bringing safety awareness to our community. The traveling award was given to Central Emergency Services, and a special recognition was given to Dr. Byron McCord for his contribution to safety awareness over the many years.

It is a powerful tool when community groups unite together and bring specialized events for their city. It was a pleasure to serve with all of these people and see us come together for important issues.

Renee Duncan, Coordinator Soldotna Safety Day
