The Auke Bay Parent Teacher Association would like to express its most sincere gratitude to a whole lot of people, including all of our volunteers and the many local businesses that made our annual Halloween Carnival such a great success.
First, to Auke Bay School's volunteer community - parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who helped create, operate and clean up the carnival, and who brought baked goods for the cake walk. There are too many of you to name individually, but thank you to each of you! It could not have happened without you.
Second, to the team of high school students who built, operated, and cleaned up our Haunted House: the girls' and boys' track teams, and the journalism classes' Ego students. They went above and beyond the call of duty. Our haunted house was awesome, and you deserve a huge thank you, and congratulations on a job well done! And special thanks to their adult leaders: Scott May, Janette Gagnon, and Alison McKenna. Your leadership made this effort a reality, and we really appreciate it!
Finally, to the local businesses who continue to contribute money, goods, and services to support our annual carnival: Alaska Commercial Contractors, Bullwinkle's Pizza Parlors, Carr's Safeway, Costco, DeHart's, DNK Mining Company, Floors Galore, Imagination Station, JRC The Alaska Club, McDonald's, Nugget Alaskan Outfitters, Our Back Yard, R.H. Development, Southeast Waffle Co., Super Bear and Gross Alaska Theatres. Through your generosity, approximately 350 little ghosts and goblins who attended the Carnival left with lots of great food and prizes.
Our annual Halloween Carnival could not happen without the wonderful community effort and support from all of you. Thank you very much.
Nancy Courtney, carnivalcoordinator, and the Auke Bay PTA
