Homecoming meal to raise scholarship funds
Saturday marks the 19th year a special barbecue meal will be provided at the Kenai Central High School homecoming football game. Unocal purchased two hogs at the 4-H Market Livestock Auction at the Kenai Peninsula State Fair and donated them for the event. Carrol and JoAnne Martin of the Diamond M Ranch in Kenai will prepare pork barbecue and all the fixings starting at noon. The Kenai-Skyview game is at 2 p.m.
The hogs were owned by 4-Hers Melody Mileur of Palmer and Caleb Daniels of Ninilchik. Caleb will be on hand to serve.
The cost of the meal is $5, and all funds raised will go toward the James Martin Memorial Scholarship. James, the Martins’ son, and 17 others died in a Ryan Air crash in Homer on Nov. 23, 1987. James was active in 4-H and the Market Livestock Program and on the football and wrestling teams at Kenai.
“The scholarship is intended to help those who share the same enthusiasm and interests in life as James,” JoAnne said.
A committee will select the recipient of the $500 scholarship in May.
