... for soccer support
Thanks to Frank Palmer and the Douglas Truckers.
Douglas Truckers has sponsored a men's soccer team for 23 years. The players of each generation of Truckers wish to thank Frank and the other Douglas Truckers for their contributions and continued support over the years. We would also like to thank you for your generosity in supplying dinner for the end of the season get-togethers, especially the one at Mike's Place. Your team produced many lifelong friendships and a few good players. It wasn't just about playing soccer, it was about families and friends getting together year after year. We won't forget you and we wish you the best in all your endeavors.
... for AWARE donation
On behalf of the women and children of AWARE we would like to thank St. Ann's Care Center for their donation of dozens and dozens of teddy bears and stuffed animals. These cute and cuddly gifts have helped many children and women feel supported and cared for in a time of crises. Your thoughtfulness has brought a smile to all of our hearts. Such generosity makes difficult days a bit easier. Thank you.
... for donating van
The Southeast Alaska Food Bank (SEAFB) wishes to thank Holland America Line for their very generous donation of a much-needed van for pick up and delivery of food throughout Juneau. Although we have been using the van since May, it only recently was painted with the SEAFB logo. Holland America paid for repainting the van and is also paying for the maintenance of the van.
SEAFB distributes an average of 18,000 pounds of food per month and the van travels an average of 1,500 miles per month in Juneau. Member agencies provide food directly to families, youth, the mentally ill, victims of spousal abuse and the elderly.
Thanks again to Holland America for their generosity.
... for volleyball support
On behalf of the JDHS Girl's Volleyball team, I would like to thank Carrs, Costco, Super Bear, Fred Meyer, McDonalds and the many parent volunteers for their donations of time and goods to host the Juneau Invitational Volleyball Extravaganza (JIVE) team luncheon Oct. 7. There were eight out-of-town teams participating and the luncheon was greatly appreciated by all.
... for pizza
The Teens Against Tobacco Use (TATU) from JDHS would like to thank Bullwinkles for their generous contribution of pizza that we enjoyed during our training on Oct. 7. We spent the day learning about the dangers of tobacco and chew. We will be using the information we learned to present lessons to all of the 5th graders in our school district. Thank you again, Bullwinkles.

... for dance help
For Domestic Violence Awareness Month, AWARE sponsored a community dance Oct. 21 at the Armory. Our hope was to create an evening where the community could come together in solidarity, dance their shoes off and have fun.
The dance was a success due to the kind generosity of some key players. AWARE would like to take the opportunity to thank Juneau's most swinging, Thunder Mountain Big Band for putting on such a jiving performance. We would also like to recognize and thank Pat Hull for his help in keeping the evening running smoothly, the Armory for use of the facility, Will and Blockbuster Video for donating door prizes, and KTOO for their support in promoting the event. We would finally like to extend our appreciation to everyone in the community who came to honor and show their support for Domestic Violence Awareness.
