In October we celebrate the transfer of Alaska from Russia to the United States. Our annual Alaska Day Dinner will be held at the Elks Lodge on Bogard Road on October 16. Doors open at 5:30, followed by a Dessert Auction at 6:00. Bring your yummiest dessert to tempt your fellow bidders! A buffet dinner, served at 7:00, will be prime rib with all the fixings prepared by Marian Romano of Nona's Osteria. Our guest speaker, Dick Mackey, will share stories about his adventures on the Iditarod Trail. Tickets are $45 and must be reserved by Oct 10. Contact any board member or leave a message on the office phone- 907-376-2005, and we'll get back to you.
