Plenty of thanks for Senior Walk

The Chugiak-Eagle River Senior Center would like to thank everyone who was involved in the Eagle River Walk for Seniors event. This event was a tremendous success! Everyone had a great time, and together we were able to raise over $9,500 to help local resident seniors in need. The Hiland Mountain Correctional Center hosted a carnival and walk, which raised more than $3,800! We’d like to thank the correctional center, as well as everyone who put forth their time and energy into raising donations to go toward the Senior Center’s Good Sam Fund.

Kim Skipper will work hard for Eagle River

I have lived in Eagle River since 1984 and I’m concerned about Alaska’s future. My family and I are supporting Kim Skipper for State House. Kim worked under State Representative Anna Fairclough as her Legislative Aide. I’m happy that Kim Skipper is now running to represent Eagle River, Eagle River Valley and Hiland Road since Anna Fairclough is seeking a State Senate seat.

Illegal signs a nuisance

As I drive down the public highway and city streets, I constantly see illegal campaign signs on public property (streets, right of ways, etc.).

Candidate says thanks

Chugiak-Eagle River is such a wonderful and supportive community to live in. Let me express how thankful I am for our town and for the great people who live here. Nearly 100 people (and three furry friends) came out to join my campaign team and me to march in the Bear Paw Parade! I greatly appreciate each and every one of you! Your energy and enthusiasm was inspiring.

Family thanks supporters

We would like to thank the following businesses and communities that have helped support Ty’s expenses for travel to see a specialist for his brain tumor. Without the Eagle River, Soldotna and Fairbanks communities, Alaska Air National Guard of Anchorage, friends and family we would never be able to get him to Seattle.

Scoop your poop

The Bear Paw Parade was a great success, but the people who chose to bring their pets should be ashamed of themselves. There was dog poop everywhere, and should have been picked up by the owners. Please don’t bring your pets if you can’t be responsible.
