CES appreciates participation in Progress Days' open house

The chief and staff of Central Emergency Services would like to thank the members of our community for participating in our open house after the Soldotna Progress Days Parade. The majority of our apparatus (old and new) on display provided us the opportunity to show the general public how we operate on a daily basis and the services our response equipment and personnel can provide to our community. We would also like to say thank you to Bruce Harting of Coca Cola for providing their new premier Vanilla Coke, to Mick Galic of Safeway for providing an abundance of cookies, to Craig MacDonald for his Power Point presentation of CES activities and to all those participating in our drawing for rides in our ladder truck.

The winners of the drawing are Haylee Hunter of Kenai and Daniel Paulk of Sterling. A special thanks to the shift personnel of CES, the on-call employees and the Explorer Post program participants for their time and efforts in putting it all together. A job well done by everyone and we hope to see you again next year!

Curly Ashfield fund helps athletes attend football camp

The parents, coaches, athletes and booster club for football would like to take this opportunity to thank the Curly Ashfield Memorial Scholarship Fund for its work in supporting the youth of our community. Nineteen young men were able to attend football camp this past summer in part due to the financial support they received from the Curly Ashfield fund. Thanks to the many businesses and community members who donate their time, money and resources to the fund and its fund-raising endeavors. Your hard work and efforts toward the most valuable asset of our community -- the young kids -- does not go unnoticed. Finally, we would like to give a special thank you to Kelly and Laurie Bookey for all of the hard work and time that they put into the scholarship fund.

Ladies Stars say thanks for memorable fund-raiser

This year the Lady Stars basketball team was involved in its first fund-raiser. Many local fishing guides donated their time to take the Lady Stars fishing along with many people who made donations. Not only do we want to thank those people for their contributions but the others who made it possible.

Hopefully next year the tradition will carry on, but on a sunny day.

Thank you, Mark Tuter, Al Howard, Marty Day, Joe Aley, Bill Withrow, Jim Golden and Arther "Smitty" Smitt.

Amy Breakfield

Lady Star
