A Not so Quiet Week
Well, the Merchants lost, 101-84 against Angoon, but Tyler Healy, Andrew Friske and Jesse McGraw made the all-tourney team and just playing in the championship game at Gold Medal is a big deal. Also, I talked to Ralph last night and a memorial service for Ellen Borders is scheduled for Saturday April 9 at 1:00pm in the Chilkat Center. And in the way the world keeps on spinning, and we keep on picking each other up, there will be a Japanese dinner tomorrow night at the school cafeteria at 5:30 to raise funds for the victims of the disaster there. That's not all, it will be a busy week. Wednesday Eric Stevens will give a talk on Haines weather patterns at the library at 7pm, Thursday there will be a community rally and march against domestic violence, at noon, from Main St. to the library. On Friday from 5-7 is the opening reception for an exhibit of local photographers featuring pictures of Haines and the Chilkat Valley at the museum, and the Fireweed Restaurant opens for the summer Friday night. Saturday night at 5:30 in the school cafeteria the Haines Animal Rescue Kennel will host their annual meeting, spaghetti feed, and dessert auction, and if you are in Juneau, I'll be reading at the launch of the University of Alaska Southeast's literary journal, Tidal Echoes, at 7pm at the Egan Library. All that, and we have more daylight than Costa Rica.
