Good day to all my Nikiski neighbors.
We were graced by a bit of snow last week. While I am sad to see the summer go, the thrill of area children made the white stuff a happy event.
There was a great turnout at the Built It Festival at Nikiski North Star Elementary. Kids of all ages show up for a free spaghetti dinner, provided by the PTA and Nikiski Boys and Girls Club Torch Club and then minds were challenged as groups worked on mathematical and art related activities.
Stop and Go has a new lighted sign located in front.
The Nikiski Senior Citizens Center will offer blood pressure checks today at 11:30 a.m.
