Generous donations helps hospice continue providing care, comfort
Hospice of the Central Peninsula Board of Directors, volunteers, members and staff wish to express our appreciation and gratitude to Kenai Eagles Auxiliary No. 3525 and the National Fraternal Order of the Eagles Auxiliary for their generous donations of $5,000 to our program this June.
We especially wish to acknowledge out-going auxiliary president, Donna Flug, incoming president, Darlene Merlo, and Ruth Fitzpatrick. Thanks also to all who made the chicken dinner a success and to all those who participated in this fund-raiser for hospice.
This wonderful donation will allow hospice to continue its mission to provide care and comfort to persons with life-limiting illness and the bereaved in out community. The support of the Eagles Auxiliary is a great source of inspiration to our volunteers and to those we serve.
Liz Schubert, executive director Hospice of the Central Peninsula
Many contribute to success of annual library book sale
The Friends of the Kenai Community Library had their annual book sale during the weekend of May 31 through June 2. Did you notice the green and white striped tent in the parking lot? It was lent to us by the Salamatof Native Association; Kelly and Mitch helped set it up.
Jim Lackey loaned us the truck from Carlile Trucking that hauled the boxes of books stored at the EDD Building, and it was driven by Robert.
Others who worked and made our weekend such a success were: Cary and Molly Graves, Megan O'Neill, Margaret Simon, Nedra Evenson, Jed and Chris Watkins, Ralph VanDusseldorp, Gwen and Larry Klawunder, Jack LaShot, Nora Satathite, Janet Brown, Sue Carter, Erik Dorsey, Emily DeForest and the several who forgot to sign the work sheet.
We do appreciate all the help we had and we especially say thank you to the hundreds who purchased our surplus. See you again next year, same time, same place.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Nedra Evenson, Board of Trustees
