Music and fish made for fun barbecue

Thanks to all who attended the Community King Salmon Barbecue June 15th at the Southeast Alaska State Fairgrounds. This annual event celebrates the importance of our local fishing fleet and fishing industry businesses to our community. Thanks to Ocean Beauty for donating 1,200 pounds of fresh king salmon; to the 20 fishing industry sponsors that donated funds for the event; and to Haines Packing Company and the expert grill and fry teams for truly excellent fish preparation. Thanks to Steve Anderson for pitching in. Thanks to the volunteers, fair board members and staff who prepared and served food, and to the bands for great, live music! What a fun evening.
