Law enforcement officers show their commitment to young people

The Peninsula Piranha Swim Team would like to thank the Kenai Peninsula Chapter of the Alaska Police Officers Association and local Troopers of the Fraternal Order of Alaska State Troopers for their generous contributions.

This generosity will enable our team to host a Peak Performance Swim Camp in our area. We are very excited about the camp and the opportunities this type of training will provide peninsula swimmers. They will benefit from the camp, both as competitive athletes and as individuals learning the value of reaching their personal best.

We sincerely appreciate these men and women who are not only interested in our public safety, but also are committed to supporting the endeavors of our young people.

Bike rodeo means safer summer for bikers, inline skaters

Thank you to Dr. Byron McCord and all the PTA members and volunteers who helped sponsor the Soldotna-Redoubt Bike Rodeo. Children had their bikes checked for safety and were able to purchase helmets, which were personally fit to them.

Hopefully it will be a safer summer for bikers and inline skaters, thanks to Dr. McCord and everyone!

We would like to send out a big thanks to all these volunteers who generously contributed their time: Marion Nickelson, Aimee Harrison, Karen Kester, Loretta Eaton, Albert Parra, Mary Kennedy, Frank Knudsen, Jason Spracher, Kyle Gauthier, Beth Kellie, Jeff Lettington, Cody McLaury, Karen Calderwood, Stephen Noble, Tanna Chenault, Liz Lettington, Shanette Wik, Robert Anderson, Ashlee Gillaspie, Joe Jones, Tracey Eckert, Tina Knutson, Lisa Reischach, Ginger Holly, Ann Krogseng and Tammy Berdahl. Thank you to all of these fabulous volunteers and also to all of the teachers involved with the competing students, we appreciate your support.

Two women help inspire others in TOPS group in Sterling

TOPS Alaska No. 182 in Sterling would like to thank two wonderful members for the fantastic job they did on the recent quilt auction. There was a lot of energy put into the quilt, which was beautiful. It made a wonderful profit to go toward our annual convention, which will be held in Wasilla next year.

Ricki Bowen and Louise Schadle are two members who keep the rest of us encouraged and inspired to reach our goals and not let anything stand in the way. The words "don't" and "can't" aren't even in their vocabulary. They teach us more than they will ever know. Thank you, ladies.

Pam Breakfield for the TOPS pals in Sterling
