... for coming to the rescue
Just wanted to thank the owner of SS Body for coming to our rescue. On a Saturday when everyone is closed, he offered to fix the leak in our motor home's air conditioner without pay. Even though he had a P.T. Cruiser to finish polishing, he spent over an hour drying and sealing our leak.
Thank you again SS Body for helping a mom and two daughters spend a drier time in Alaska

... for gay pride event
In honor of National Gay Pride Month, the Southeast Alaskan Gay and Lesbian Alliance (SEAGLA) gratefully acknowledges those many Juneau residents and businesses whose kindness and hard work benefit our community year-round and which made this year's Second Annual Gay Pride Carnival a success. Despite the cold and wet weather, the crowd at the carnival basked in the warmth that radiated from such performers as Brett Dillingham, the Glacial Erratics, Rory Merrit Stitt, the Pride Chorus, the Bobb Family Quartet and the Panhandle Crabgrass Revival Band, to name a few.
Special thanks to Air North and the following businesses who donated their goods and services to the event and the fundraising auction for SEAGLA: The Rie Munoz Gallery, Lisa Davidson's Boutique, Perseverance Theater, Juneau Arts and Humanities Council, Gross Alaska, Seventh Heaven, Jewel Box, Cuts on Line, First Impressions, Sun Burst Tanning, Studio 154, Gourmet Alaska, Focal Point Books, Alaska Travel Adventures, the Kayaks, Juneau Outdoor Center, Alaskan Hotel, Nugget Alaskan Outfitters, Juneau Racquet Club, Ben Bohen Catering, and Specialty Imports. Most gracious thanks to Betsy Sims and Albert McDonnell for their tireless work on the sound system and to the Juneau Assembly, the Juneau Police Department and Chief Mel Personett for their conscientious work in providing for an eight-hour street closure. Once again hats off to Ken and Jill at the Silverbow, who opened their hearts to the community and let the Gay Pride Carnival take over their business for the day.
Finally, thanks to members of SEAGLA's Pride Committee whose boundless vision, courage and energy is creating a community that we can all be proud of.
