Bike safety rodeo successful

We would like to express our appreciation to the following individuals and organizations for making the annual Moose Bike Safety Rodeo for youth a success. Once again a large number of children were instructed in the proper methods of operating a bicycle safely on our streets, by our Kenai police force and the Explorer Scouts who work with the police department.

The event would not have been possible without the generous support of Richard Hultberg, Gary Dixon, Bob Roach, Jack and Caroline Roller, Wes Parker, the Kenai Police Department, KPD Explorer Scouts, the Peninsula Moose Lodge, Dan Castimore and a special thanks to Kenai police officer Kelly George.

Their continual support of events for our peninsula youth enhance our community and provide safer streets for everyone.

Region II track meet runs great

On the weekend of May 17 and 18, a goodly number of local people gave up a substantial amount of time to help Ninilchik School host the Region II Track and Field Championships. There are not enough "thanks" that could be said to repay them for their kindness and time. The event was a resounding success. The athletes of Region II are very appreciative.

Lest I forget any, thanks to all. A special thanks goes out to Dale Sandahl, John Dahlgren, Cliff Massie and Craig Jung, all former school district administrators who gave of their expertise and made things run so smoothly. Marina Bosick, Ludi Link, Eric Skjold, Mike Wetherbee, Gerald Byrne and Charlotte Records, all Ninilchik teachers. readily pitched in and did much. Brian and Sarah Clark, Dan Leman, Dan Hill, Mike Chase, Mark and Liz Kruzick, Mary Clock, Christine Moerlein, Shirley Schollenberg, Larry George Matson, Theresa Chihuly and the junior high track team from Ninilchik all were indispensable parts of the effort that made a great experience for the athletes. Many others did jobs that were behind the scene and often unnoticed but not unappreciated.

The way these friends pitched in shows what a great place the peninsula is and how much they care about the success of our children. I know this is not everyone, forgive me if I left you out, but thanks from my heart.

School year ends on delicious note

On May 22, North Star Elementary students, parents and staff ended another fine school year by celebrating with an end-of-the-year picnic. The North Star PTO, sponsor of this annual event, wishes to take this opportunity to express a heartfelt "thank you" to all those responsible for making our last day at school a fun and memorable one.

Thank you to the following businesses for their generous donations: Three Bears, Nikiski Tesoro 2 Go, Agrium and Tesoro. Also a huge thank you to the parent volunteers who helped with the picnic, especially all the "cooks." It was a great school year. We hope to see you all in the fall!
