Art guild appreciates support for annual holiday arts-crafts fair
Peninsula Art Guild says a big "thank you" to everyone who helped with the arts and crafts fair at Kenai Central High School.
Peninsula Art Guild board members Marcia Beauchamp and Marty Hapeman and dedicated volunteer Deana Kennedy spent many hours preparing for and assisting at the fair. Star McCloud, Don and Nina Person, Dyer Van Devere, Russell Bacon, and Peggy, Brian and Juanita Millyard helped measure and mark the booth spaces. Russell Bacon, Justin Van Devere, the Arctic Young Marines, Tony Doyle and Joshua Tague assisted with door-prize tickets, traffic control and other tasks. Bill Casey was a jolly Santa Claus both Friday and Saturday! Bobby Clucas and his dedicated crew of KCHS custodians deserve special thanks, as well as Jim Bookey of Coffee Time Expresso who donated publicity on his lighted sign.
Vendors from Fairbanks, Willow, Wasilla, Palmer, Anchorage, Homer, Kodiak, Kenai, Soldotna, Sterling, Kasilof, Ninilchik, Anchor Point and other places in Alaska offered a wide variety of artwork and craft items. Their space-rental fees support the art guild's local scholarship program for students from Kenai Peninsula high schools pursuing higher education in the arts.
Thanks also to all the customers who supported Alaska artists and crafters. See you next year at the fair!
