Tuesday, April 27th: Walk Southeast. Big Brothers Big Sisters. Remembering 9-11. Blessing of the Fleet.

You may have heard that saying: we can’t do everything, but we can all do something. And that seems to be the theme for this Tuesday’s Juneau Afternoon.

Petersburg and Wrangell have accepted a challenge from Juneau to see which community has the highest average of miles walked per participant (Photo courtesy of CBJ Parks and Rec).

If you want to get fit — and  also enjoy a little friendly competition with Wrangell and Petersburg — the Juneau Parks and Recreation department’s Walk Southeast program might be a fun way to go. Guest: Lauren Verrelli. 

Also, wanted: More Big Brothers and Big Sisters. How one-on-one mentors can make a big difference in a kid’s life.  Guests:  Corrine Conlin and Sarah Elliot. 

And we’re headed into May, the month of remembrance. Two organizations are asking for community support.

The Juneau Glacier Valley Rotary Club needs help with its 9-11 memorial, one brick at a time. Guests: Karen Tarver and Dan Dawson.  

The Alaska Commercial Fishermen’s Memorial will read the names of fishermen on its memorial this Saturday and hold a ceremony for the blessing of the fleet. Guest: Carl Brodersen.

The blessing of the fleet will be held Saturday at 10:00 a.m at the Memorial Wall, next to Taku Fisheries (Photo courtesy of Alaska Commercial Fishermen’s Memorial).
