On behalf of students, families and friends at Auke Bay Elementary School, we would like to extend our gratitude to Ron Maas and the Thunder Mountain Big Band for volunteering for the third year in a row to play beautiful music at our Ballroom Dance Extravaganza on Dec. 16.
Having a live band of the size and stature of the Thunder Mountain Big Band is a rare treat for any elementary school. We at Auke Bay are very grateful to them for donating their time and expertise to make this event one that will not likely be forgotten.
The fifth graders danced beautifully, thanks to our new dance instructor, Pat Belek. The event was so well-attended that we ran out of room in our parking lot. A special thanks to Juneau Community Officers Alisha Sell and Murphy Bookes for their help with parking.
