Chilkat Valley News - Serving Haines and Klukwan, Alaska since 1966


Displaced cabin-dwellers grateful


I am overwhelmed with the love, support, and supplies that we have received in the last few days. Special thanks to the fire guys and gals for the midnight response and the hugs. Thank you to Chuck Mitman and The Uglys; the immediate monetary support was a huge surprise that meant more than money can buy. Thank you Beth Fenhaus and Lindsay Johnson – triple gold stars for the both of you! Thank you to Cindy Jones and to everyone else who provided phone calls, clothes, words of support, and thoughtful gifts.

Chilkat Valley News limits acknowledgement to 15 individuals and 10 businesses. Only in Haines could that number not be enough. I am so lucky to live in this town that I love so much.
