Community participation makes hospital celebration great success

A special thanks to Central Peninsula General Hospital employees who helped make the hospital's 30th anniversary-baby reunion a special event. Thanks to Debi Honer, Michelle Crawford, Ronda Price, Kelli Kalar, Eldon Harvey, Mike Johnson, Doug Hansen and Patti Brantley.

Our thanks to Tesoro for providing the tent. A round of applause to Mike Morgan and the Spur Highway Spankers for providing entertainment. Lori Chase catered the event with great food, and Mark Burgener designed great 30th anniversary T- shirts that were given away to the first 100 babies that attended the event.

Jacob Gilman, age 6, was the winner in the drawing for a $500 savings bond. Congratulations, Jacob.

Thank you to Roy Mullin for coming and taking the group baby reunion picture. If anyone wants a copy of the group photo, they can contact Roy at 262-2727.

We also appreciated the Soldotna High School football team members who volunteered to help bus tables, empty trash and keep the grounds picked up.

We were honored to have guests old and young attend the event and want all of you to know how very much we appreciate the support, input and dedication of this wonderful community.

Oilers appreciated for sharing time, talents with Little Leaguers

I would like to thank the players of the Peninsula Oilers Baseball Club for hosting the baseball clinic for the local Little League teams. The clinic was held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 18 and June 19 and was free!

Although attendance was sparse and not many took advantage of this great learning opportunity, they should have! My boys had a wonderful time playing and learning from the enthusiastic and professional Oiler team. They worked on their fielding and batting skills and played mini games.

Once again, thank you, Oilers, for the time and effort you put forth and hopefully next year the field will be full of even more kids eager to learn!

Susan Lee, Kenai
