WEEKEND COMMUNITY EVENTS
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Hope everyone is doing great and enjoying the last week before school starts! Two of our schools, Airport Heights and Mountain View, are undergoing much needed renovations, and I'm excited that our students will benefit from these upgrades. For Mountain View, the big improvement is sound proofing! With all the military planes flying overhead there are times a teacher has to stop class because the noise is too much. Once completed, this shouldn't happen anymore. Airport Heights will benefit from a little more space as well as improved areas for some programs. Stop by and take a look!
Listed below are local events around Anchorage happening this weekend and next. I plan on attending most of these events and would love to see you there!
SITKA STREET PARK CLIMBING BOULDER RIBBON-CUTTING CEREMONY
On Saturday, August 20th from 9am-12pm, community members and volunteers will join the Anchorage Park Foundation and Anchorage Parks and Recreation in a Park Fix-It to improve Sitka Street Park followed by a ribbon cutting for the recently installed climbing boulder. I’m so excited to see this project finally complete. Pre-teens and teenagers need healthy recreation opportunities and this new boulder is a great informal introduction to climbing. I’m happy to see the neighborhood embracing this new asset.
Those interested in learning to boulder are encouraged to attend the Park Fix-It and ribbon cutting. Local climbers will be available to demonstrate and provide guidance. The boulder is suitable for ages 2 to adult.
When: Saturday, August 20th – 1pm-4pm
When: Saturday, August 20th – 3pm-7pm
SAVE THE DATE – RUSSIAN JACK COMMUNITY PICNIC
Hope to see you at these events!
