Labors and lessons of love

I would like to begin by thanking the Alaska Star for providing this venue, for the different ministries in Eagle River, to share with the community about the opportunities which exist in the churches located in Eagle River. Thank you so much.

Surrendering, to everything and nothing

The life I lived was the normal life. All the expected requirements: A college degree, career, married with two children, a dog, a cat, two cars and a mortgage. We were busy with family, work and church. My husband and I were smart, successful and attractive with many social obligations and parties to attend. This was it, ‘Happily Ever After.’ At least that was what we hoped others thought about our life. The truth was something else.

The Family: A Proclamation to the world

We, the First Presidency and the Council of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, solemnly proclaim that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of his children.

Each year the Lions International Youth Camp and Lions International Exchange Program introduce young people to life in other cultures by helping them travel abroad. Each Youth Camp and Exchange program include an extended stay hosted by one of our many international clubs.

Camp K: Youth living with diabetes

One of the many passions of Lions District 49A is Camp K, which is a diabetes camp for youth ages 7-17 located in Cooper Landing. Lions clubs throughout Alaska are asked to provide a scholarship and “adopt” one youth to send to camp each year. We have also encouraged our Leos to participate in the program and support one of their peers living with diabetes. Each year Lions and Leos step up to the challenge to provide scholarships in the amount of $400 per youth.

Lions Day with Camp Abilities

Lions across the area came out for Lions Days at Mountain View Lions Park on July 14th for Camp Abilities. There were about 85 Lions, campers, their families and volunteers showing up on a perfect day to be outside. We had seven past district governors and one current second vice district governor attend the event for a total of about 28 lions. This is one on the many projects that is very special to your local lions. The Spenard Lions Club donated $10,000 to the 2014 camp and challenged all other local Lions and volunteers to meet that challenge. Each of your local lions clubs do provide support to Camp Abilities in various ways from financial support, volunteering their time as the cooks or volunteering during camp. There is no charge for the campers to attend through the lion donations and fundraising. Each year the Sleeping Lady Mountain Lions provide the campers on their final night with a dinner of pizza and ice cream sundaes. The experienced campers look forward to that treat each year.

Bear Paw Pageant Scholarship

“Caution Bears Working” was the theme this year. If you missed the Bear Paw Pageant last Thursday night, you missed a good time. There were 14 contestants showing us their style and creativity with costumes and skits related to an Alaskan theme.

Fire Company gets coupons

The Chugiak Volunteer Fire Company has received help in securing a new fire truck from 5,000 miles away. This week the Courier received a letter from Natalie Brooks who is visiting with her parents at Merrimac, Mass.

“Statehood”

The shouting is over, but the joy and enthusiasm lingers on! I’m speaking, of course, about Congressional approval of statehood for this great country of ours. It was a memorable occasion for the majority of Alaskans the day the word was flashed instantaneously by the miracle of teletype. After years of struggle, red tape, delay and what-not, the victory was finally ours.
