... for helping youth hockey
The Juneau/Douglas Ice Association would like to thank the coaches and parents who volunteer their time to our youth hockey program, which, at present, includes more than 250 youth, from 4 to 18 years old. The program includes more than 25 coaches as well as parents who give many hours several times per week during the hockey season, which runs from October to April.
Also, we would like to thank all our sponsors: Northern Lights Development, Juneau Moose Lodge, Peel Construction, Behrends Mechanical, D&L Rentals, J.W. Bean, The Skater's Edge, I.B.E.W. Local 1547 and the Scottish Rite Masons.
We wish to thank the Treadwell Arena staff and the City & Borough of Juneau for the Scholarship and Youth Activities Grant Programs. These programs have been instrumental in our being able to keep the cost to participate at a reasonable level.

... for a blessed Christmas season
We would like to express our sincere appreciation and thanks to all of Juneau in helping us to make this a happy and joyous Christmas for all those who came to us in need of some help.
Food boxes from Southeast Builders Association; toys given through our Angel Tree Program; donations of turkeys and other holiday foods; supporters of our Adopt-A-Family Program; individuals stopping by the office and leaving a check; all these brought life and reality to the phrase, "Together, you and I can make a difference."
We would also say thank you to the volunteers, Boy Scouts, Juneau-Douglas High School Honor Society and especially the three Rotary Clubs here in Juneau that made our Kettle program a "ringing" success. Not only did we meet our goal, we significantly surpassed it.
We look into 2005 with hopes of a better year.
God bless you all.

... for the fireworks
I would like to thank Eaglecrest and the wonderful sponsors and volunteers for the fantastic firework display on New Year's. This was a spectacular firework display over crystal clear skies with pristine white snowcaps on the mountains. We are very lucky in Juneau to have this world class backdrop. Sponsors and volunteers, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for providing such rich entertainment for our community. It is people like yourself that make Juneau an awesome place to live.
... from Fireweed Place
A big thank you to the wonderful people who were thoughtful enough to remember us on Christmas. ANS Camp No. 70 is always a big surprise. Thank you from those of us at Fireweed Place.

... for the tickets
The Glory Hole thanks the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council for generously offering tickets for several of our patrons to see Kevin Locke, Lakota hoop dancer. The tickets were much appreciated by those who attended his performance on Jan. 17, as they would not otherwise have been able to go. Locke's message and talent were inspirational, and we thank JAHC for sharing this fine performer with us.
