The Capital City High School Science Fair 2002 was held on March 2, 2002. Projects were entered by more than 100 high school students who worked as individuals or on teams to conduct studies and present their results. The success of this year's fair was the direct result of the interest and help from numerous organizations and individuals who volunteered their time and donated money, food and prizes.

...for your support

The Juneau Symphony would like to announce the winners of our 2002 travel raffle: Karen Blue won the helicopter trekking tour donated by NorthStar Trekking; Mark Jaqua will be fishing soon with Big Jim's Charters; Carol Baham took home the two-day stay at the Blue Heron B&B in Gustavus along with the boat trip into Glacier Bay donated by Goldbelt; Allison Fargnoli was the lucky winner of two Alaska Airlines tickets; and the grand prize winner of a cruise on the Mexican Riviera, courtesy of Princess Tours, was Margaret Vrolyk.

We thank everyone who bought a raffle ticket to support the symphony. We especially thank all our wonderful prize donors for making this raffle so attractive that we sold out of raffle tickets before the downbeat on April 6.

Europe and Beyond on April 6 was a terrific success. Thanks to BP for its generous corporate sponsorship of this concert. We also thank Grayline of Alaska for lending a van for musician transport, Leo and Llewellyn Lutchansky and their corps of dedicated symphony volunteers for consistent concert production help, and the young musicians who assisted with announcing the winners of the raffle.

Our final concert of this year will take place June 22, when Symphony Solstice returns to town. Come join us for a night of wonderful pops music at Centennial Hall.

Thanks again to Juneau for its support of our raffle. All proceeds go to producing great orchestral music in and for Alaska's capital city.
