Congratulations to the 22 winners of the Sterling Senior Center's recent "Sweeps" drawing and dinner during the month of August. These 22 winners shared in the drawing give away of $15,000.
Thank you to all who purchased tickets, sold tickets, volunteered to work at the dinners and helped in any way to make this another successful fund-raiser for the Sterling area senior citizens.
The Sterling seniors announce the winners in the Sockeye Salmon Count Classic that ended Aug. 7 at midnight. This is a game where you guess the number of sockeye salmon that will enter the Kenai River as of a certain date, this year being Aug. 7. The official count on that date was 1,153,774 sockeye salmon entering the river. Donna Higgins' guess was closest at 1,153,550; Larry Erickson was second with a guess of 1,154,000; and Laurel Barber was third with a guess of 1,154,045. These winners shared proceeds of $922.00. Thanks to all who purchased tickets for this event. Look for even more prizes to be offered next year.
