'Take a Kid Fishing Day' makes memories for young angler

I would like to express my appreciation for being included in the "Take a Kid Fishing Day." It's always a great joy to get on "the river" -- a blessing many take for granted or never have the opportunity to take advantage of.

I was invited on Herman Fandel's boat on the Kenai. Thanks, Herman, you're the best. I would also like to thank the other fishing guides who participated in this wonderful activity. Also, I thank Coca-Cola for the drinks, Fred Meyer, the Kenai River Sportfishing Association, the Department of Fish and Game and McDonald's for the breakfast. I also thank Soldotna Middle School Principal Lee Young for the idea and helping to get this started.

From what I understand, this could turn into an annual event. My second-grade brother sorely wanted to go. Maybe next year, Duncan. ...

I thank you all again and hope that next year it will be just as fun and successful.

Cemetery cleanup appreciated

The Kasilof-Cohoe Cemetery Association would like to thank the Soldotna Lions and all the other volunteers that worked hard at cleaning up the cemetery in preparation for Memorial Day. Thanks again, you did a beautiful job.

Visiting author helps young writers

The Kenai Community Library would like to thank the following people and businesses for making the recent Debbie Miller author visit and Young Writers' Conference a success: Joe Arness and the Kenai Merit Inn, Mike Morgan, Megan O'Neill, Lori Chase of The Chase Is Over catering, and the Friends of the Library. A special thanks to the teachers who welcomed Debbie Miller at their schools and the parents who encouraged their children to attend the Young Writers' Conference. Without all their support wonderful programs such as these would not be possible.
