... for helping with graduation, awards ceremony

The Juneau Adult Education Center, a program of SERRC - Alaska's Educational Resource Center - would like to thank the following businesses and organizations for helping to make our 2003 Graduation and Awards Ceremony on May 30 a very special event for our graduates and their families and friends.

The Alaska Native Brotherhood, Camp 2, gave the use of the ANB Hall, and Percy Hope and his staff set up the hall for the ceremony.

These businesses and organizations provided scholarships to enable several GED graduates, Alaska Vocational Institute graduates and adult education students to continue their education at local Postsecondary institutions: Elgee Rehfeld Barrett & Mertz, LLC; Alaska Native Sisterhood, Camp 2; The Competitive Edge; Hummingbird Hollow Gift Shop; Wells Fargo Bank; and the Southeast Regional Resource Center.

These local merchants assisted with decorations for the hall and refreshments for the post-ceremony reception: Glacier Gardens, Martha's Flowers, Miss Scarlett's Greenery, Good Humor Balloons, Breeze-In Grocery, Costco, Fred Meyer, Paradise Lunch and Bakery, Safeway and Super Bear Supermarket.

We would also like to thank our dedicated volunteer tutors for working with our students as we continue to serve the adult education needs of the Juneau Community.

...for the support.

AWARE would like to thank Gretchen Garrett and Heritage Coffee Co. for their on-going support of our program. Heritage Coffee has continuously and unequivocally provided AWARE with gift certificates for volunteer recognition. These volunteer appreciation awards are a wonderful way to acknowledge the hard work community members freely give to AWARE. By working together, individuals, agencies and the business community can provide support and healing for families who are affected by domestic violence.

Thank you, Heritage Coffee for your unwavering support.

... from the John family

The family of Ronald C. John would like to thank the many well-wishers as they said goodbye to his way of life and history. They thank the Juneau Harbor Master and Tim Ackerman for taking care of his boat, the St. Peter; the crew that helped take the boat to her final resting place; Don Cox, owner of the Osprey for lending the power skiff; and Al Martin for towing the St. Peter to his favorite fishing ground.

Before his death, he put the boat up for sale. He received offers for the sale of the boat and earnest money, which he returned; he could not part with the St. Peter. It was the wishes of his family to burn the St. Peter at his favorite hook off St. Peter Point. The St. Peter was burned at St. Peter Point at 5 p.m. on May 11, 2003.
