Letter to the editor
The Phoenix Chapter of the Alaska State Firefighters Association would like to express our sincere gratitude to the many local businesses that donated to support our dinner cruise and auction on Saturday, Aug. 25. The Phoenix Chapter is a combined effort of Bear Creek, Moose Pass and Seward Fire Departments, and Seward Volunteer Ambulance Corps, in a joint association to provide advanced training and education for our emergency responders.
Thanks to a sold-out boat full of great community supporters and our generous auction donors, we raised nearly $8,500 that will support firefighter and EMT training in the Seward/Bear Creek/Moose Pass area. We would specifically like to thank the following businesses for their contributions, with a special thanks to Kenai Fjords Tours for making this event possible for the third year in a row!
