The men’s “Things We Do in Alaska” scavenger hunt and amazing race was a wonderful success thanks to the great participants, sponsors and the many volunteers from the community who assisted me and eight of our Venturer Scouts. We raised approximately $1,100 as well as another $700 at the car wash the following day. The money will be used toward our Scouting adventure on the big island of Hawaii a month from now. Thanks, Delta Western, for the use of the gas station for the car wash. Sponsors included Miles Furniture, Alaska Power & Telephone, Haines Uglies, Hungry Moose, Lynden Transport and Beach Roadhouse. Support volunteers were Alaska Mountain Guides, Kim Larson, Thom Ely, Shane and Janis Horton, Dan Burke, John Svenson, J.R. Churchill, Stan Jones, The ladies “Haines Kilowatts,” Jeff Moskowitz, Greg Palmieri, Dennis Franks, Adriane Franks, American Legion, Haines Sporstman’s Association, and Chilkat Bakery. Special thanks to Lisa Flory and Dick Haas for cooking a wonderful dinner. What a fun and exciting day we all had.
