Many contribute to success of Alaska Moose Convention

The Peninsula Moose Lodge joined forces with Moose Lodges all over Alaska to provide the annual Alaska Moose Convention here in Kenai.

This event was held at the Moose Lodge located at 12853 Kenai Spur Highway in Kenai, Mile 11.5 Kenai Spur Highway by C-Plaza. The event provided Alaskans from all over the state the opportunity to train, share ideas and provide funding for programs such as the Challenger Learning Center, to mention just one.

While the motels and restaurants benefited from this fall event, many individuals and businesses need to be recognized for their generosity to this year's Alaska Moose Convention, including: Dan Van Zee of Kenai Hertz Car Sales, Kenai Merit Inn, AT&T Wireless Services, Peak Construction, Salamatoff Native Association, Seekins Ford, J & J Landscaping, M & M Market, Kenai Mayor John Williams, Unocal, Mike Chenault, Williams Express, U.S. Postal Service, First National Bank of Anchorage, American Legion Auxiliary Kenai Unit No. 20, the Challenger Learning Center of Alaska, Peninsula Internet and the many, many volunteers who helped make this state convention a huge success.

We want to express our deep appreciation for their support and generosity, that in turn is then given to the youth, handicapped, senior citizen, scouting, individuals in need, and those less fortunate of our community.

Day of Caring volunteers build boardwalk at Camp Kushtaka

Camp Fire Boys and Girls extend a heartfelt thank you to the fall United Way Day of Caring volunteers.

BP employees Oz Arundell, Lynn Davis, and Marty Shearer accompanied by children Katie and Jacob, and Mike Eddings from Peak volunteered at Camp Kushtaka, which is our summer resident camp located on Kenai Lake near Cooper Landing.

With the use of a generator donated by Sterling Tool Rental, they built a much-needed boardwalk at the camp. We appreciate the great enthusiasm and support, and the outstanding work contributed by the fall Day of Caring volunteers.
