... for donating proceeds
Big Brothers Big Sisters would like to thank the cast and crew of the Aside Performance Group for designating the proceeds of two performances of "Greater Tuna" to our youth program. The support will be used to help us with the costs of recruiting, screening and supporting volunteers who spend time with youth who can benefit from their time and attention. Congratulations to Aside for a hilarious, wonderful show.

... for swim team support
Speaking on behalf of the JDHS 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 athletes the opportunity to compete against quality competition and provide the benefits that a high school activity can provide.
Also, the team wishes to thank Fred Sayre and his crew at Fred Meyer.
