I received a nice e-mail from Jerri Wood of Renton, Wash., who reads the Peninsula Clarion's Ninilchik Community Neighbors column to keep in the loop of what's happening in our community. Jerri is Kevin Zimmerman's sister and asked me to include her nephew's Kyle Zimmerman's birthday, but Kyle's birthday was Sept. 20, so I assured her I would include a belated greeting and make a note to get it in on time next year. She thanked me for the article featuring her brother back in April 2007.
She said, "I was so impressed with the awesome amount of love and support that the village of Ninilchik has for my brother and his family. When I was there when Diana passed away I was awestruck by the depth of the assistance, care and concern then and how it has never ended. And I know from listening to my mom, that this wasn't just for Kevin, but every member of the community is treated the same. If there is a need, it's filled. The village is one very large family that cares for its own. If folks are aware, no one goes without someone is always there with a hand up. You live in a great place."
I have to agree with her. This is a wonderful place to live.
There will be a Alaska Department of Fish and Game advisory meeting today at 7 p.m. at the Ninilchik School. On the agenda will be a report on joint boards meeting and a vote on the lower inlet proposals.

The 4-H Awards program for the Kenai Peninsula clubs will be held Saturday at Kenai Peninsula State Fairgrounds at 3 p.m. The Trail Blazers 4-H club will host the event and area 4-H clubs are encouraged to bring finger foods to share.
