Seniors shine through Soldotna celebration

Posted: Monday, July 19, 2004

From the beauty of handmade quilts to the aroma of fresh-baked goods to the jazz sound of the "Elite 9," all the senses will be pleasantly stimulated at the Soldotna Senior Citizens Center during Pro-gress Days this year.

The quilt show at the center, which usually fills the entrance lobby area with colorful fabric creations, according to director Jan Fena, also will feature winners from the recent Robin Fabric Place quilt show at Cook Inlet Academy.

Outside the center, the jazz ensemble from Seward will perform from noon until 4 p.m. Saturday, courtesy of the Soldotna Chamber of Com-merce.

On Friday and Saturday, 20 crafters from all over the Kenai Peninsula will show and sell a variety of craft items, and the seniors are hosting an antique display featuring furniture, dish ware, jewelry, dolls and other collectibles.

Treats from the senior center's bake sale are sure to tempt the taste buds of everyone seeking cakes, pies, breads and an assortment of homemade jellies and jams.

Out in the center's parking lot, visitors' appetites will be satisfied with sandwiches, chili, hot dogs, hamburgers, nachos and soft drinks Friday and Saturday.

Also Saturday, a barbecue to help raise money for the seniors' Endowment Trust Fund will feature grilled red salmon this year, in addition to the traditional fare of hot dogs, hamburgers, chili dogs and assorted beverages.

"The chili is actually made the night before by men from the Endowment Fund board, using a secret recipe," Fena said.

In addition to all the activities going on in and around the center, senior volunteers pitched in to create a float in Soldotna's Progress Days parade, with the theme, "River of Dreams."
