Volunteers made Winter Games shine


The Haines Dolphins Swim Team hosted teams from Whitehorse and Juneau this weekend in what many described as the best Winter Games ever! Our swimmers did us proud, both in and out of the pool. The Dolphins are truly appreciative of the community support and many volunteers who helped time events, house visiting swimmers, sing anthems, officiate races, cook and serve chili, and help with concessions and hospitality. We’d like to especially thank Howsers IGA, Olerud’s, and Mountain Market for their generous donations of food and beverages for our hospitality room at the meet. Their support of the Winter Games each year allows us to keep our meet volunteers fed and functional for two long, exciting days. Many visitors left our town on Sunday afternoon looking forward to their next visit. Thank you to everyone for helping create a great meet and a memorable weekend.
