On Today’s show we heard from Mark Calvert from AWARE and Steve SuWing, a parent leader with the Father’s Community Café. Shona Strausser from Perseverance Theater was in to talk with us about this summer’s STAR program. Betsy Longenbough and Pam Finley from the Holy Trinity Episcopal church shared about two fundraisers they have on Saturday: a plant sale in the morning and an afternoon tea. Jody Weber from the Weber Dance Company and Philip Crowder from Juneau Dance Unlimited were in to talk about their collaboration and tomorrow night’s performance. Listen to audio from the program below. We regret that our first interview with Mark Calvert and Steve SuWing did not record.
- Norton Gregory is running for Juneau Assembly in the upcoming municipal election.
- Alaska’s largest ferry will be down for repairs longer than expected. Another ship will fill in, but it’s smaller and some travelers will have to make other arrangements.
- Alaska’s oldest Native organizations are trying to attract younger members. That and other issues are on the table at the ANB-ANS Grand Camp Convention Oct. 5-8.
- As the air gets colder and the days shorter, the Skagway tourism season is coming to a close. Overall, tourism staff says this summer was a success. The last cruise ship of the season has come and gone and shop owners around Skagway are preparing for winter, cleaning up and closing their doors. The streets that were recently busy with visitors are quieting down.
