A sweet Valentine’s Day thanks

On Valentine’s Day, Girl Scout Troop 4036 delivered 12 singing valentines throughout Alaska’s capital city. Spreading love and cheer was the primary goal, but the event was also a fundraiser for the troop’s trip to Whitehorse this summer. Along with a great adventure, the trip will teach the girls money management skills, international trip planning and working together as a troop to achieve a big goal.

The troop would like to express gratitude to the following companies for their support in making the Valentines Day Fundraiser an incredible success: Holland America/Princess/Gray Lines of Alaska for providing a van and driver to transport the girls to each delivery site and Fred Meyer for valentines and candy; the troop also would like to thank Hecla Greens Creek Mine and the Local IBEW for their generous

support for the upcoming trip.

The troop is comprised of second-, third- and fourth-grade students who attend Gastineau and Harborview Elementary Schools and the Juneau Community Charter School, along with home-schooled families. Along with delivering singing valentines, the girls have raised funds by selling nuts and cookies and singing holiday songs. Upcoming fundraisers include singing telegrams for Mothers’ and Fathers’ Day.

Guy About Town: Help for a town made of people

Hey, all! I hope you’ve been having a healthy, enjoyable January despite the meteorological mood swings. Like seriously, it’s like it can’t decide whether it wants to try to rip the door off my house or knock on it gingerly and sell me cookies. I have the fortune, however, of not having windows in my office. See, I don’t have to watch the tumultuous perpetual gray on the one hand, and on the other I don’t have to feel bad about being inside when it’s sunny. I just turn on my Costa Rica webcam and put my shades and Pet Sounds album on and party with those spreadsheets all day long.
