KRSA provides much needed service to Soldotna Visitor Center

So often we take for granted our quality of life and the wonderful area we live in. It is through the efforts of many individuals and organizations that we are so fortunate.

I would like to recognize one of those organizations. The Kenai River Sportfishing Association has once again generously provided the Soldotna Visitor Center with a much needed service -- port-a-potties.

We have over 60,000 visitors a year through our center, and this does not even include the people who just go down to the river to fish. With only one restroom available in our facility, the port-a-potties serve a much-needed service.

Again, thank you KRSA for helping to preserve our precious resources as well as serving our visitors.

Financial support contributes to well-being of Seward seniors

The Seward Senior Center would like to thank the following businesses for their financial contributions: Providence Foundation, First National Bank of Anchorage (FNBA) and TelAlaska.

Providence Foundation and FNBA financial contributions have made it possible for the center to purchase a treadmill for the fitness basement. We have witnessed that the senior population here in Seward is very attentive to keeping fit, strong and healthy. With the addition of a treadmill, the center can offer seniors a safe place to walk in the cold and icy winter months and a dry spot during the raining season, all for free.

TelAlaska's financial contributions have allowed the center to provide Internet access to all seniors, visiting and local residents, for free. Come get online at one of the three computers!

These businesses understand that it takes a whole community to support senior services. Thank you for helping us help each other.

Successful spring carnival helps support end-of-year field trips

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the many businesses and individuals that helped us put on another successful spring carnival. Sears has been organizing this carnival for about 25 years now to help support our end-of-the-year field trips.

Each year the community, families and friends of our students are a tremendous support. This enables our second-grade students to take their annual field trip to Halibut Cove and our first-grade students to take their annual field trip to the Alaska Zoo in Anchorage. These are very exciting and educational experiences for our children.

We are very grateful for the support of Arby's, The Video Place, McDonald's, Carrs, Fred Meyer, Spenard Builders Supply, Alaska AirGas and all the volunteers that helped organize and run the carnival. Thanks for a job well done!

Also, a big thank you to Kenai Police Department for the use of their safety vests and Foster Construction for the use of their fencing and candles for the parking lot. Thanks again!
