This letter is to express our appreciation to Domino's Pizza for the donation of pizza at cost for our class to sell. The pizza was sold on Nov. 27 for $1 a slice to staff and students of Riverbend Elementary School. The money that was raised will help pay expenses for our class trip to Echo Ranch in the spring. Our goal is to raise $520. Additional funds will need to be raised to pay for our parents and teachers to accompany us.

Discovery Southeast would like to extend its many thanks to the community of Juneau for the success of our recent raffle of the Living Shores of Alaska Quilt. First and foremost, our thanks go to the Capital City Quilters, who created this exquisite work of art and donated it to Discovery Southeast for a fund-raiser. Juneau is truly blessed to have such a group of talented quilters who are willing to share their magnificent work in a way that benefits so many in our community.
We would also like to thank Caribou Crossings and the Irish Shop for displaying the quilt this summer and selling raffle tickets, and to Hearthside Books and Rainbow Foods also for selling tickets. Many individuals, including members of our board of directors, sold tickets and we thank them as well. We also thank David Jobe and Anne Kincheloe for their help in preparing the raffle poster. Finally, we want to thank all the people in Juneau (and elsewhere) who purchased raffle tickets; Discovery Southeast is committed to putting the $9,000 proceeds to good use in providing hands-on nature education to your children, and will do our best to deserve your support.
