Era Aviation shows support for community's art affairs

The Kenai Potters Guild is very grateful that Mike LeNorman, Era Aviation director of sales and marketing, promptly approved a passenger

ticket for the Kenai Clay Exhibition juror to travel Cordova-Kenai round trip.

This donation is very meaningful to the guild's meeting exhibition production expense; and, it expresses Era's interest in community art affairs.

Thank you, Era.

Soil remediation site visit helps answer many questions

Community Rivers Planning Coalition would like to thank the many participants in the successful soil remediation site visit to the Trailside General Store that was conducted on June 11. Special thanks to Steve Manchester of United Soil Recycling, Brad Authier of Oasis Environmental, Lanie Hughes from the Kenai Peninsula Borough, and Monica English from the Department of Environmental Conser-vation for their informative answers to our questions.

The purpose of the site visit was for the public to have a chance to examine how soil remediation works and to ask questions pertaining to their concerns about what happens to the soil during and after remediation. We look forward to continuing the dialogue that was established at the site visit in the future with the communities that are affected by soil contamination and subsequent remediation.

Many contribute to successful school year at Soldotna Elementary

To Soldotna Elementary parents, staff and Community Supporters:

With a few tears and many cheers we've had another successful school year come to an end. Soldotna Elementary PTA would like to thank many people and businesses for making the school year fun for the students.

With all the events that occurred in the world this year, we realize just how fortunate we are to live in a caring and giving community! A community that not only gives financially, but with their hearts and souls.

The PTA would like to thank Mrs. Cannava and all the staff at the school for their undying commitment to the students. The teamwork between the staff and parents has made several of our activities a success and put smiles on our children's faces.

Many businesses and organizations have supported us this year, a huge thanks for their donations and time: Godfather's Pizza, Safeway, Coca Cola, Fred Meyer, Sweeney's, Ladies VFW Auxiliary Post No. 10046, Tesoro, Agrium, Pizza Boys, Orca Theaters, Trustworthy Hardware, Re-Bike and Dr. McCord, Kenai Peninsula Safe Kids, Redoubt Elementary PTA, K-Beach Elementary PTA, Boys and Girls After the Bell Program, Title I, and the grandparent volunteers.

We have several parents who continually help out at the yearly events, such as the book fair, Christmas elves, end-of-the-year picnic and Wonderful Wolves Day. Their time is so precious to us! The PTA would also like to thank all the parents who come in throughout the year and support the teachers and are involved in their children's education.

On the last day of school we had several volunteers come in and help with the end-of-the-year picnic and field day. Thank you to the teachers for always organizing the field day, and the volunteers that have come year after year to help make the last day so much fun for the students.

Have a safe and fun summer, and see you in the fall at the open house!

Thank you!

Soldotna Elementary PTA Lauri Lingafelt, president; Heather Skipper, Patty Rich and Shelley Endsley
