They worked on a 500-foot section of trail, digging, hauling and flattening the trail. Thank you to NC1(SW) Michael D. Malone, USN for setting up the work party before they arrived in Juneau.
Special thanks goes out to James F. Pfaff, Charles M. Slagle, Brian W. Snyder, Ian T. Cook, Alma M Chadwick , Brian D Bellaire, Kenyatta L McNeese, Robert J. Vandorfin and Michael Malone who spent their Saturday working on the Red Mill Trail.

...for the donations.
On behalf of the Juneau Yun Shu Ka Dancers, I would like to thank Mr. Sam Kito and Bill Thomas (Kito and Associates); Mr. Jerry Mackie (Mackie and Associates), and Mr. Tom McGerr (Tlingit and Haida Steel Industries) for donating money to help members of our dance group travel to Lawrence, Kan., to perform for Haskell Indian College's graduation ceremony and Pow Wow May 9 to 12. The funds we received were used towards airline tickets, a van rental, and to help offset the expenses of the traveling members.
I also would like to thank the following people for their generosity in donating Alaska Airlines Upgrades which helped us get two more dancers to Kansas: Representative Peggy Wilson, Claire Donahue, Representative Albert Kookesh, Heather Nobrega, Ron Wolfe of Sealaska, Amy Coffman, Maxine Richert of Sealaska, Peter Huberth, Sam Kito, Jr., Christine Hess, Dale Whitney, Dale Anderson, Dorothy Wilcox, Honey Anderson, Walter Wilcox, and Donald Wilcox.
Our dance group was formed in 1986 and we work hard by practicing weekly. We've recovered from a wonderful "Celebration 2002" and are now concentrating our fund-raising efforts.
Once again, thank you very much for your support!

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeast Alaska would like to thank those who contributed to our exciting fund-raising event on July 14, a whale watch cruise by Allen Marine.
We would like to start by thanking Jim Collins and Allen Marine Tours for donating a portion of the cruise cost. The terrific boat and friendly, hard-working crew made the afternoon a memorable one for everyone aboard with spectacular wildlife sightings and a great tour. Thanks also to the Auke Bay harbor master, Capital Chevrolet, Coca Cola of Juneau, Don Abel Building Supplies, the Mendenhall Valley McDonald's, Northern Sales and Pat Yearty for their help with the event.
This year's whale watch was a great success. A big thanks to everyone who attended. Each of you helps us bring moments of magic into the lives more of Juneau's children.

Perseverance Theatre wishes to thank Janet Coffin, Mary Jo Hobbs, and Sally McIntyre for quickly loaning American flags to replace ours which were stolen. Because of their generosity, we were able to re-decorate for the Fourth of July. Thank you!
...for the contributions.
The senior and disabled residents of Mountain View Public Housing wish to extend their appreciation to those who generously contributed to our 4th of July float.
Our float was honored with the first place prize for the "Most Beautiful" float in the Douglas parade.
This would not have been possible without the support of Sherrie Simmons, Corporate Communication Office, AHFC; John Holmquest, Evergreen Ford; and Paul Leopold, Don Able Equipment Rentals.
Thank you to all.
