On March 22 more than 120 Juneau-Douglas High School students participated in the Air, Land and Sea Summer Employment Field Trip organized by Alaska Visitor Industry Educational Coordinator Paulette Simpson. Students visited nine locations with employers from 20 different tour operations. They learned firsthand the varied job descriptions and skills needed to work in the tourism field.
The logistics, time and energy donated by Paulette Simpson and participating tour operators was immense. These efforts are very much appreciated by the students and staff of Juneau-Douglas High School.
Many folks worked to make this event successful; the following led the effort and I would like to thank them specifically:
Joanne Cameron and Lori Sevier of Alaska Airlines; Barb Kelly of Alaska Discovery; Larry Johansen of Alaska Sightseeing Cruise West; Mike Windred of Alaska Travel Adventures; Patty McKelvey of Allen Marine; Cindy Long of Cruise Line Agencies; Rob Parsons of DIPAC; Donna Leamer of ERA Helicopters; Darrell Brown and Paul Davidson of Four Seasons Marine and Juneau Trolley Car Co.; Marsha Squires of Gastineau Guiding; Cindy Bowhay of Glacier Gardens; Christa McMullen and Erica Payne of Gray Line of Alaska; Melita Welling of NorthStar Helicopters; Charlotte Tom and Amber Koelsch of Princess Tours; Karen Livingston and Todd Antioquia of Goldbelt; Bruce Barker and Jim Duncan of Mount Roberts Tramway; Jeff White and Victoria Johnson of Goldbelt; Steve Pfister of TEMSCO Helicopters; and Holly Bierkortte of Wings of Alaska.
Thanks also to the many tourism employees who spent the day with our students. A very special thank you goes to Paulette Simpson of the Alaska Visitor Industry Association. for organizing this very successful event.

As we celebrate National Volunteer Week, April 21 to 27, I would like to thank the hundreds of Girl Scout volunteers in Southeast Alaska who are dedicated to making a difference in girls lives. These volunteers may head up troops with or without daughters, or may not have daughters at all. They may be college students, young professionals, caring dads and uncles, empty-nesters or moms. They may be single women or stay-at-home parents. But one thing these dedicated volunteers have in common is a desire to go the extra mile to help girls develop into responsible, caring adults who give back to our community. They provide a nurturing environment where girls learn new skills, friendships are formed, and self-esteem grows.
If you know a Girl Scout leader or volunteer, please tell them how much you appreciate the time and energy they give. Thanks Girl Scout leaders and volunteers for all you do!

The MADD Juneau Chapter wishes to recognize the organizations and individuals who helped make our fund-raiser a success.
We thank the teachers and principals of the elementary schools the Tiny Trotters were graciously allowed to visit: Carmen Katasse from Riverbend Elementary School, Karen MacDonald from Mendenhall River Elementary School, Dave Newton from Auke Bay Elementary School, Bernie Sorenson from Glacier Valley Elementary School and Kathi Riemer from Gastineau Elementary School.
We sold out the Juneau Douglas High School auditorium when the Tiny Trotters played against a volunteer Juneau team. Thanks to Carrie Pusich at JDHS for event planning, along with the two janitors and the many people who helped pull out the stuck bleachers.
A hearty thank you to the Juneau volunteer basketball team: Andrew Parsons, Russ Ellis, Luke Jones, John White Jr., Nayyir Rawhani, Rockin Ron Davis, Byron Jack, Sgt. Ben Coronell, Sgt. Dave Campbell and Officer Dominic Branson. Phil Paramour assisted the Tiny Trotters. These hapless victims allowed themselves to become part of a circus act, complete with whipped cream, hand cuffs and blindfolds, much to the enjoyment of the audience.
We appreciate referees Ron Taug and Leslie Isaacs, who also played along with the skits - even getting twirled in the air. Hale Loofborrow and Josh Zwingleberg stepped forward to be the scorekeepers. Thank you!
Northern Sales and Juneau Wholesale donated chips, snacks and soda. Thank you! Copy Express was very helpful and understanding as well as patient. Temsco, Goldbelt Corp., Java Jazz, Aspen Hotels, Channel Bowl, ERA Helicopters, Wings of Alaska and the Fiddlehead all donated wonderful prizes. Alaska Pacific Bank provided fund-raising office space and went out of their way in terms of hospitality. MADD appreciates this.
Youth in Action volunteers Sione Tapoc and Rebecca Fletcher helped where needed as well as one of our youth MADD board members, Cara Roberts. We had many organizations who stepped forward to purchase tickets for those youth who otherwise could not have attended.
We are once again shown how giving and caring our community is and how fortunate was are to live among so many wonderful people.
...for the volunteering.
