... from the Guard
The Alaska Army National Guard 3rd Battalion would like to thank Mark Stopha and Sara Hannan from the Alaska Wild Salmon Company for donating 20 pounds of salmon to local families of deployed soldiers. They very much appreciated the kind gesture.
Also, we would like to thank Cahn Makai of CMC Graphics and the Alaska Juneau Mining Company for their kind donations to the deployed soldiers. The 3rd Battalion appreciates the community's ongoing support during this time of deployment. Thank you.
... from the JDHS Girls Volleyball team
The Juneau-Douglas High School Girls Volleyball team hosted their annual Juneau Invitational Volleyball Extravaganza tournament on Oct. 7 and 8. Twelve teams from other communities traveled to Juneau (Chugiak, Colony, Cordova, Craig, Hoonah, Ketchikan, Mount Edgecumbe, Porter Creek and Vanier from Whitehorse, Petersburg, Sitka and Wrangell) to participate in this tournament. All of the teams performed fabulously and showed excellent sportsmanship.
On Oct. 8, the parents hosted their traditional luncheon to welcome the traveling players and coaches to our city. The Juneau community is extremely fortunate as demonstrated by the generous business and parental support to our youth and the community's future.
Special thanks and appreciation go to Alaskan & Proud/Foodland, Carr's/Safeway, Costco, Duck Creek Market, Odom Company, Pepsi and Super Bear. Thanks to the volleyball parents for their generous support, donations and time. Without this support, the luncheon would not have been such a great success.

... to Juneau police
On behalf of the Mendenhall River School community, we would like to thank the Juneau Police Department for its increased patrols of Back Loop Road, Riverside Drive and our school's access road over the past month.
We greatly appreciate the police department's efforts to help Mendenhall River Community School start its days in a safer, more orderly way.
