U.S. Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska, will address the Haines Chamber of Commerce during a special meeting set for noon Friday, March 25 at the American Bald Eagle Foundation.

It’s been a decade or more since Young has visited the Chilkat Valley. Alaska’s lone congressman, Young has held the state’s seat in the House of Representatives since 1973.

Young will be escorted to town by state Rep. Bill Thomas, R-Haines. Thomas said Young also would speak to state legislators in Juneau. Young will arrive in Haines about 11 a.m. and will leave in the early afternoon. He will visit project sites around town.
