Thanks, Allen Marine, for donating a wildlife cruise

Sound off on the important issues at

The donation of a wildlife cruise is a significant and much appreciated gift. The trustees of the Bartlett Regional Hospital Foundation thank Allen Marine Tours for their generous support and the revenue that was raised from this event.

The participants on the cruise were entertained by a pod of whales bubble net fishing, which was a thrilling experience. Allen Marine Lines made this possible for local people through their program of supporting nonprofit organizations. Thank you, Allen Marine Lines, for support and generosity.

Thanks for participating in our hunger banquet

The students of the Communities In Schools, Juneau, Ethics and Leadership class presented an Oxfam America Hunger Banquet for the community on May 12 at Juneau-Douglas High School.

About 60 people participated in the event, which raised public awareness about world hunger, poverty, and social injustice and raised funds for Oxfam, an international relief organization. We were very pleased with the success of the banquet and could not have done it without the generous support of the following people and organizations: Emily Barnak, Jeff Brown, Carolyn Bouvier, Elsa Demeksa, Joanne Erskine, Donald Gregory, Darlene Jones, Susan Koester, Kathryn Milliron, Judy Regan, Haifa Sadighi, Elaine Schroeder, Bernie Sorenson, Marsha Squires, Mike Young, Alaskan and Proud market, Costco, Cathedral of the Nativity and the students of the JDHS Health classes.

Sincere thanks to all who helped us and those who attended.
