Capital City Celebrations' "Thank You" banner is on display at the Capital City Weekly offices after spending the winter at Centennial Hall.
The local businesses listed on the banner have provided services and financial backing to Capital City Celebrations, which has sponsored several events commemorating 50 years of Alaska's Statehood and Juneau as Alaska's capital. Many more names will be added to the list as the community approaches special Fourth of July events, which will include the re-enactment of the raising of the 49 Star Flag at the Juneau-Douglas City Museum and a parade to include re-creation of a few of the 1959 floats.
The updated thank-you banner will be moved July 3 to Centennial Hall for the return of the popular doo-wop group, The Diamonds. Tickets will go on sale in the near future.
Also, Capital City Celebrations has designated the Juneau family-owned business Miners Postal, a U.S. Postal Service location, as an outlet for the 50th Anniversary of Statehood memorabilia.
Located at Front and Franklin Streets, the store will be offering the Statehood bronze medallions, wine glasses, pins, tee shirts, posters, quilt raffle tickets and orders for the special Rie Muñoz donated print.
Open year-round, Miners Postal was established in December 2004 and offers cards, packing and wrapping materials, small gift items, as well as full downtown Juneau U.S. Postal Services.
Memorabilia is also available at the Juneau-Douglas City Museum.
