Many help make memorable night for SoHi class of 2002

On behalf of the Soldotna High School Parents of Seniors Committee, I would like to thank all the parents, friends of parents, relatives, individuals and businesses who gave so generously of their time, talents and money to the Class of 2002 After Graduation Party. It takes a tremendous amount of effort to pull an event of this magnitude together much less entice a very diverse group of graduates to attend. Thanks to many, the all-night party this year was a huge success.

The Soldotna Sports Center was the perfect setting, and 95 percent of the Soldotna High School graduating seniors attended. There were terrific decorations, great food, music, dancing, floor and board games, and fabulous door prizes for every senior. Everything was donated -- even the parents who chaperoned.

I am very proud to be a part of a community that cares about kids and makes their safety a top priority. We could not have done the job without the help of many, many friends and neighbors.
