Thanks for helping me attend the pageant
Sound off on the important issues at
I left Thursday for the Mrs. Alaska-America Pageant that will be held Saturday in Anchorage. As the first Juneauite to ever attend this event since 1978, I go only because of the support of my friends, family and this community. I never would have made my goal amount had it not been for the following people: Jeanne Curry, of the Alaska Soap and Candle Co.; Amanda and Ron Walls, of Alaska; Mary Bandirola of Belissima; Carol Granados, of California; the Carson family, of Alaska; Clive Thomas, of Alaska; David Stauffer, of California; Debbie Leonard, of Alaska; Diana and Bill Granados, of California; Elizabeth Lebert, of Alaska; Gene and Lynda Shehorn, of California; John and Margaret Pugh, of Alaska; JonRobert Johnson, of Virginia; Kristi Zipp, of Virginia; Leesa Castro, of the Prospector Hotel; Mario Font, of Virginia; Mary Davidson, of Alaska; Nancy and Jim Tatum, of California; Neil Knarr, of Virginia; Northern Lights, of Alaska; Shannon and Phalean Straube, of Alaska; Teresa Shea and James Fink, of Alaska; the Eseltine family, of California; the Lyman family, of Virginia; the Short family, of California; Venietia and Eder Santana, of Alaska; Wade and Christine Bryson, of Subway restaurants; and Zoe Bedell, of Vermont.
I would like to extend an extra special thank you to my two top sponsors Subway restaurants and the Prospector Hotel, whose sponsorship money paid my airfare to Anchorage. I am going to try and win the crown on Saturday but Juneau has already won my heart. I was recently asked what I liked most about living in Juneau and without hesitation I said it was the people.
Even if I don't become Mrs. Alaska, I am happy representing you all as Mrs. Juneau.
Thanks for lunch on the Sapphire Princess
Thank you to Princess Cruises and Princess Tours for the wonderful luncheon on the Sapphire Princess in support of the Juneau-Douglas High School hockey program. We appreciated the fine meal, service, hospitality, and opportunity to tour the expansive ship. Each contributed to making the luncheon on July 3 a memorable experience for the guests. Thanks to each of the guests who helped make this event a success. Special thanks to Kirby Day who has been a gracious host exemplifying the endearing elements of community that many residents value dearly about living in Juneau. Thank you for your generous support of this program and for the support extended to visiting high school hockey programs from communities across Alaska.
