...for the assistance.
On behalf of the Juneau-Douglas High School swimmers and divers and their parents, we would like to thank all the Juneau residents who purchased a Christmas tree from us and thereby assisted the team with our prime fund- raising effort for the year.
Your purchase goes a long way in affording the student-athlete the opportunity to compete against quality competition and the benefits that a high school activity can provide.
Also, the team wishes to thank Fred Sayre, Steve Batch and the crew at Fred Meyer.
Marc Bucat, Cathy Tide and John Wray
...for your kindness and support.
As many of you have shared with us, "words cannot express" how grateful we are for your floodtide of love which carried us through the past week. Your offerings of homes, cars, soul food, airline miles and tickets, get-aways, JRC passes, flowers, cards, full hearts and much more overwhelmed us. This nourished us to the core and sustains us now.
We will thank many of you personally, but we know that we cannot possibly do that for all the hundreds of letters, phone calls, floral arrangements, and contributions to Liz's memorial fund (we have not yet thought out the specifics of the fund, but it will be appropriate to Liz's interests in the environment and energy), the Aware shelter, and the Child Advocacy Center.
Your incredible participation in the memorial service last Sunday night startled and fortified us. We are healing and growing stronger day by day with you. With most appreciative hearts we lovingly thank this beautiful community.

On Saturday, Nov. 30, the Alaska Folk Festival sponsored Novemberfest, the annual fund-raising event that helps keep Folk Festival and the love of making music alive and strong. Many people came to the Elks Lodge that day, gave their time and talents, and a number of local merchants made donations to support our cause. Folks sang, played music, told stories, danced, visited and just had a great time. This is a letter of thanks to all who made themselves part of Novemberfest with their participation, contributions and support.
To name everyone who made this event a success would not be possible. However, I do want to specifically thank Safeway, Super Bear, Alaskan & Proud market, Heritage Coffee and the Alaskan Brewery for their donations. And special thanks go out to radio stations that helped us get the word out about the event, businesses that let us put up posters on their bulletin boards and windows, and to the Juneau Empire for featuring Novemberfest in the arts and entertainment section.
On behalf of the Alaskan Folk Festival, thanks to everyone who helped make this a fun-filled success. See you in April.

This year's UAS student exhibition at the Baranof Hotel during Gallery Walk was fun and tremendously satisfying, thanks to the hotel's hospitality, generosity and advocacy of the arts.
Thanks to Bill Mauck and Steve Hamilton at the Baranof for their interest and patient assistance. Also thanks to the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council, Dianne Anderson, Brad Ponack, Jan Criswell, Ray Watkins, UAS Facilities and most of all, to the art students at UAS who have worked so hard this semester.
This sort of support and sponsorship of the arts helps to expand the art-world for all of us and is one of so many elements that make Juneau such a wonderful community to live in.

From 90 miles north, from all of us at Hospice of Haines, comes a huge and heartfelt appreciation to Hospice and Homecare of Juneau. From folks in the office, to Kathy C., Jaime M., and Lauren C., Hospice of Haines would not have flourished over our six years of existence without you. We couldn't ask for a better big sister. Thank you for being there.
