... for supporting the Juneau Symphony

The Juneau Symphony would like to thank the community for supporting this performance season. We would especially like to recognize Princess Tours for the use of its vans, which made the move of our instruments for all our performances possible this season. We cannot thank you enough. Local businesses and patrons alike have made this season successful. We wish to thank the community for its unending support and promise a wonderful upcoming season featuring Beethoven's 9th. Thank you again.

... for attending first Hall of Fame luncheon

The Juneau Achievement Community Committee thanks everyone who was so generous in supporting our first Juneau JA Business Hall of Fame luncheon and raffle. The money raised will support programs in Juneau schools that teach the value of the free enterprise system and economics. We appreciate the support of Royal Caribbean International/Celebrity Cruises for hosting the lunch for 90 people onboard the vessel Vision of the Seas. The food, service and ambiance were exceptional. The luncheon gave JA a chance to recognize all of the teachers and consultant volunteers from the business community this year.

Thanks to First National Bank of Alaska for sponsoring the lunch tickets for all the teachers and consultants. We are also grateful for the support of the Juneau Chamber of Commerce, which allowed us to advertise the luncheon to its membership.

In addition to lunch, the committee also held a raffle. Ticket printing was donated by Printing Trade Company. The grand prize, a trip for two to Mexico, came from the generous donation of the vacation home of Tom and Marianne Manning in Sayulita (, combined with the donation of mileage for air tickets by Ted Quinn and Tom Corkran. First prize was donated by the Prospector Hotel and included dinner for two at T.K. Maguire's and an overnight at the Prospector Hotel. Second prize was a 1-hour massage donated by Cuts Online Salon and Day Spa.

Congratulations to the winners: Grand prize winner Joann Cameron, first prize winner Michael Story and second prize winner Gretchen Bishop. We look forward to adding classrooms and business consultants to the program in 2003/2004.

... to Glacier Gardens Rainforest for golf carts

As the president of Igloo 6, Pioneers of Alaska, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Steve and Cindy Bowhay of Glacier Gardens Rainforest Adventures for their kind loan of golf carts for our use in the Fourth of July parade. They have been generous to us for several years, and I just wanted the people of Juneau to know of their kindness.

We also wish to thank John Holmquist of Evergreen Motors and his staff for the use of a Deluxe Lincoln Aviator SUV to transport the Pioneer King and Queen Regents, Maurice and Angie Long, in the parade this year.

These acts of kindness by these fine people show the true Alaskan spirit, and we are totally grateful.

... for sinfully sweet strawberry smoothies

Several MADD senoritas sold sinfully sweet strawberry (and lime) smoothies during the Douglas 4th of July celebration.

Expanding community awareness on the dangers of underage drinking and drunk driving will be possible because of support from Don Abel's, Juneau Lion's Club, Fred Meyer's and Copy Express.

Our appreciation is doubled by the fact that these businesses continue to assist during a time when it is difficult to help non-profits such as MADD.
