We'd like to thank all the children, parents and volunteers who helped make Soldotna Public Library's summer reading program a "creative" success this year. Thank you to Connie Goltz for sharing her artwork, photos and continued support, Friday activity volunteers: Mick Audette, Jenni Larsen, Ginger DeMoss, Melissa Nill and members of the Kenai Peninsula Orchestra. Other volunteers included Jeanette and Mae Pedginski, Sara Hondel, Judy Schmidt and Katja Wolfe.
A special thank you to library patron Billi Kaho, who generously donated money that was used to purchase prizes for the program, and to the parents who donated cookies for our party.
I'd also like to thank Richard Hahn, who has been very active in promoting the library, its services, Pioneer nights and other special events by being a founding member of the Friends of the Joyce K. Carver Memorial Public Library and a member and chairman of the library board. He has helped organize construction on three floats the Friends have had in the Soldotna Progress Days Parade (his was the smiling face behind the wheel), and will soon be leaving our community to move to Washington. We are going to miss him greatly.
And finally, many thanks to the volunteers who helped to organize and run the Soldotna Progress Days used book sale: Pat Burdick, Mary McCown, Katie Jeanette Pedginski, Norma Cooper, her visiting daughter, Joan, and Elaine Woodburn. Thank you to local authors Ethel McMilin, Loren Flagg, Ron Walden, Phyllis Adams and Virginia Walters, who participated in the accompanying author-signing event.
