... for pie auction
We would like to thank you for making the Juneau Pioneers' Home 11th Glacier Valley Rotary Pie Auction a success. The amount raised at the auction was approximately $6,070. The JPH Resident Council will be using this money to purchase supplies to support "The Eden Alternative" philosophy. This philosophy helps us to create a true home where our elders can continue to grow and live a life worth living. With the Glacier Valley Rotary Club's support, the Juneau Pioneers' Home will be able to continue having a strong activity program and providing the necessary supplies for the animals and plants. The money will also be used to purchase a new heater for the greenhouse and furnishings for the new outdoor patio and walking area to be built this spring.

... for reception help
Habitat for Humanity Greater Juneau Area had the pleasure of hosting a reception on Saturday, Oct. 28, at DIPAC. This was an occasion to thank the Juneau community, contributors of gifts, services and volunteer labor to Habitat's mission of providing decent and affordable housing in Juneau. The list of our supporters, including individuals, local businesses, churches and organizations is thankfully long.
We would like to thank those who made the event an especially pleasant time of fellowship and thanksgiving: Pastor Greg Lindsay, for his words of encouragement and his invitation to the community to join Habitat's efforts; the Nimbus Ensemble, Julia and Nathan Bastuscheck, who provided beautiful music during the afternoon gathering; and DIPAC, which generously donated the use of its facility as a prize for an earlier First Ladies Build fund-raiser. The winner then passed on this prize to our Habitat affiliate. Everyone enjoyed the comfortable space with the wonderful aquariums and the great acoustics for the Nimbus Ensemble.
Our volunteers and board members, who organized this reception and prepared food, words and displays, join me in thanking you for making this the event we hoped it would be.
... for children's party
I want to thank all the individuals and businesses who sponsored the annual Children's Winter Party held at DIPAC on Dec. 2. REACH Infant Learning Program and Healthy Families Juneau hosted this event. Sixty children and their families enjoyed meeting Santa, listened to music, received a book or toy, and enjoyed looking at the fish in the aquariums. The food, the door prizes and the wonderful community spirit made it a great day for many families. We could not have offered such a wonderful day without the support of our community. Special thanks to Steven Hempel, Vance Sanders, Dick Smith, Scott Spickler, Sam Skaggs, Shear Design, Vintage Fair, The Broiler, Gourmet Alaska, Capital Records, Nugget Alaska Outfitter, Rainforest Floors and Alaska Pure Mountain Spring Water. Thanks for supporting young children and their families.

... for refreshments
The Juneau Police Department and Community Services Unit would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to Northern Sales.
Many tour groups have passed through the department over the past year and through the kindness of Northern Sales, along with their never-ending support and generous donations, we have been able to enhance the enjoyment of our departmental tours by providing refreshments at no cost to the City and Borough of Juneau.
Again in the spirit of community policing we thank you for your participation.
... for breakfast program
Gastineau School would like to send a sincere thank you to Carlene Bednarowicz, Barbara Bell, Claudette Curtis, Pastor Ron Covey, parishioners of the Douglas United Methodist Church and Douglas community for their generous contributions to the Gastineau breakfast program. Children at Gastineau are able to start their day with a warm breakfast free of charge because of the kind, caring volunteer leadership of Charlene Bednarowicz. Since Aug. 29 volunteers Charlene, Barbara and Claudette have served more than 2,600 bowls of oatmeal, 230 slices of peanut butter bread, 20 slices of plain bread and 70 gallons of milk. They serve between 40 and 57 children each morning. The children and teachers at Gastineau Elementary School deeply appreciate our community's care and commitment to the health and well being of all our children.
