The Glory Hole wishes to publicly thank University of Alaska Southeast instructor Honey Smith and three of her students - Ian, Brandon and Adam - for all their hard work on our behalf during the United Way's annual Day of Caring. These four individuals deep-cleaned one of our men's dormitories on Saturday, Sept. 20, including washing walls, windows and floors. We, and especially the gentlemen residing in that dormitory, are all very grateful for their services.
Additionally, The Glory Hole would like to thank the following groups and individuals for their recent financial support: Holland America Line - Westours Inc., for funds designated for building improvements; The Fred Meyer Foundation and the Coast Guard Women's Association, for funds that we can use to pay our utility bills; Williams Alaska Petroleum, for its generosity in designating The Glory Hole as a beneficiary of its "un-reception" for legislators; The Brian Douglas and Wythe Dornan Memorial Fund, for a grant that will be used to improve the lives of our patrons; Crondahl's Bed & Breakfast, for its continuing support through its extended stay program; Raintree Quilting, for contributing the proceeds of a quilting weekend; Justine Emerson and family, for purchasing and shipping 100 each of Corningware dinner plates, salad plates and bowls for The Glory Hole, giving us safe and sanitary dishes to use; and Conrad Muller and the Juneau Friends Society, for knowing just when we've run out of silverware and coming to our rescue once again.
The community of Juneau is made richer by the generosity of these individuals and organizations. The staff, board and especially the patrons of The Glory Hole thank each of them for their wonderful gifts.
